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.
Really? People still do that? ;)
Hello, greetings and best wishes!
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.
Will shuffle over :)
Read it and loved it!
I'm beaming over now.
I went to MJ's, read your post and commented. Great stuff! :)
I'll check it out.
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. :-DKelly, 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. :-PSame 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.
