Pen & Paper or Typing & Screen?

I used to write all my stories when I was a kid on paper. This may have had something to do with my inability to use a computer of disinterest in one,  but I wrote on paper.

But when we all grow up,  some habits die and others don’t.

I used to hate writing on the computer. It was so mechanical,  empty,  and emotionless. Handwritten was where the pain reaches your tired hands and you actually work for your writing.
But let’s be honest here, straight to a word processor is just so much more functional. It works.
I write exclusively on my laptop now and can’t write on paper. The only time I write on actual paper is to get out a few ideas for my novel. It also doesn’t help that anytime I write more than a few sentences on paper that my hand cramps up…

I have a friend, Jon who writes a lot on a typewriter and I’m actually a bit jealous of because I love typewriters.

However I can only speak for myself. So let’s open up the comment section and see what you like to write on?

Thanks for reading,  Zac Zinn.

All writers are a part of a family striving to find the question marks in their head and make them coherent words on a page. I’d love to hear from you.

  1. I would say, all around, that I prefer typing on a computer compared to writing in a journal or notebook. It’s simply more efficient for me. That being said, it can be quite refreshing to write in a physical journal or notebook, especially for personal reflections.

    Also, I really liked what you said at the end:
    “All writers are a part of a family striving to find the question marks in their head and make them coherent words on a page.”

    That’s very profound and aptly stated. Glad I stumbled upon this blog.
