Handwriting Drafts

Hi all,

That's write. Today I'm visiting M.J. Fifield and answering questions about rough drafting by hand.

Hope to see you there!

Drafting by hand is my go-to when I'm stuck. I love how it forces my brain to work differently and can usually break through whatever wall is blocking my creativity.

Thanks for stopping by! I will definitely check out your post. I enjoy rough drafting by hand sometimes.

I'm going on vacation soon, and for fear of losing it, I won't be bringing my laptop. So pen and paper it will be!

I have written 2 entire books in long-hand and bits and pieces of several other manuscripts. Nowadays I just outline by long-hand. The actual writing takes place directly on the laptop.

Writing with an actual pen can be a joy and can open up places in me that help the writing process. Congrats on your epic fantasy launches and you are featured on my blog today!

I love handwriting drafts. Partial drafts . . . I get sidetracked with excitement once that's going great and jump on laptop o_O lol

Running over to read these answers you have :D

It's my go-to when I'm away from my computer, or when I'm tired of sitting at a desk and want to write in my recliner.

I can only type my first drafts. Mine suck if I write them by hand. They suck beyond suck. lol

I seem to think best with a pen in hand. I like to do planning and things by hand and then if possible write by hand as well. The only exception is NaNoWriMo; then I'll plan by hand pretty extensively but then write like a crazy thing on the computer.

Thanks so much to everyone who've been following my blog tour. You're all awesome. :-D

Kelly, that's why I love hand drafting too.

Yes Crystal. ALL the time. ;-)

Thanks Blogoratti. :-)

Thanks for stopping by, Deborah.

Have fun Julie!

Very interesting Rachna. :-)

Thanks so much Catherine!

Katherine it's the same with me. I never really write the entire thing by hand. I just write until I've figured out the story.

It is a more comfortable way to write (once you're used to it) isn't it Melissa?

Hahaha Stina, statistically, someone is bound to say their writing sucks when written longhand. :-P

Same here Cait. It's part of the reason why I rough draft by hand, because I don't plan until I'm prepping the rewrite.
