Pen and Paper? Or All Digital?
This morning on Twitter I saw a link to Amanda Fleet's blogpost with the title above. I left a comment on her blog and Tweeted to her about it.
In her post, the author talks about needing to write things out before typing them on a computer. I've also been that way. I've always had to write stuff out before tying it. And I was that way even before I ever had a computer years ago.
This is currently what I am doing: keeping my chapter notes on filler paper in a binder. What is my reason, you may be asking? Well, one is what I said above. It just seems to be a long-time habit. Also, I can do it in bed if I get inspired then rather than during the day. It varies when I get the ideas to write.
Another is a problem I've been having with my printer for some time now. Every time I try it doesn't seem to work and I still don't know what to do. I also have an old computer and don't foresee being able to afford a new one in the near future. So this is just a temporary set up for getting my thoughts down in hopes of being able to type them out for others to read. I have copied some of the chapter so my mom can read (she still hasn't been able to). I mentioned all this in this post from last month.
The image above came from this link that asks whether you should keep a paper or digital journal and lists the advantage of each.
How do you keep your writing journal?
