How do you write your amazing books and short stories? Growing up we had an electric typewriter but mind you this was later in high school. Before we either wrote in pen very carefully so we didn’t make mistakes or use the typewriters at school if they were available.
We didn’t see a computer until my high school years where they were locked up in a room and only opened by the tech who taught us how to use them. Yippee, right? I didn’t own my first computer until my second or third year in college. I used my first credit card to buy a used one and I instantly maxed the card out. LOL
I guess with not having the equipment then like people do now I got use to writing everything by hand. Even with what I have available to me a computer, a smart pen and a smart tablet. But most of the times I revert back to writing by hand. This is frustrating since I have to retype it once I am done. But it is ingrained in me and even with the technology now I tend to still write this way.
The beautify of writing by hand I tell people is you can write anywhere with it. Yes, they make computers and tablets smaller and smaller it seems now these days but being able to curl up in a chair, beanbag or laying down on the floor while writing on my lap is something that is more comfortable if I’m using pen and paper.
I also find I am more creative when I do write by hand. Once an idea hits my head the pages do fly as I try to get it all down on paper. Even with what I have available before me and what new inventions yet to be invented I will always in my heart feel better when I write by hand.
A fact that seems to make people either totally get me for they do the same thing or they are wowed.

I initially wrote by hand until I bought a second-hand word processor from an acquaintance, The computer made this so much easier and I have never gone back to writing by hand.
The times I have to retype the WIP i do get mad at myself for being this way. LOL I am glad how you do it works for you , that is what it comes down to. 🙂
