Hi, D,
Thanks for writing with this question. I definitely prefer computer for the first draft. (I seem to think quicker than I type.) But, I know I'd get lost if I used the typewriter or pen, because I'm so slow at it. I know it's considered more "true" to the art to use a typewriter, but I'm not able to keep the draft going at that speed. It's funny, because I purchased an Underwood at a yard sale a few years ago, bought the ribbon, and never fully used the typewriter. Maybe one day, I'll slow down and use it. Until then, I keep Microsoft Office in business. What about your writing method? (less)
Brian L. Tucker This one happens to me a lot. Usually, I try to find a good book and let that author's style, thoughts, and vision clear my head so to speak.
