message 1: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Some people like to write all their homework and turn it in the next day; some people, such as myself, liket o type our homework, making sure it's neat before we turn it in to be graded. Which one do you prefer and why?

message 2: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) I prefer to type my homework if it's something like an essay or research paper. Other than that, most of my homework is written just because I don't want to waste any ink or copy paper. I like typing my work--and other things as well-- because it's always neat and legible. Also, I can type faster than I can write; if I mess up, it doesn't take long to correct the mistake and keep typing. Therefore, my mind doesn't wander over other things in the middle of long sentences.

Kate (katemreads) | 225 comments For homework it's hands down typing. I don't have the neatest handwriting so it's neat. Usually I will write it however due to my to study halls and lack of a computer. I like to write when I'm writing a story/novel, then again typing is faster and I'll usually type it up anyway. Though choice.

Andrez (andrez-ssi) i like both, idk

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) LOL LeONor. . . :)

Catamorandi (wwwgoodreadscomprofilerandi) | 29 comments I always typed my essays and research papers (before computers). Once computers were in fashion, I definitely typed them. It was easier to correct that way and looked neater. The teachers usually wanted them typed out no matter what.

message 7: by Ayunda (new)

Ayunda (ayundabs) depends on what I want to write... For writing school notes, I definitely write, but for writing stories I type. It's so much easier and less tiring :)

message 9: by Zia (new)

Zia (zrg1) | 380 comments i prefer typing so that i dont have to ask my mom how to spell big words that only really smart people(like Zakiya)know!!!!

message 10: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Aww, thanks Zia. LOL; but I'm not that smart. :)

message 11: by Alan (new)

Alan (coachmt) | 6 comments My handwriting is next to illegible so I type everything I can : )

message 12: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) That's actually very interesting, Alan! :)
It's okay. I know a lot of people--which sometimes includes myself--whose writing is practically chicken-scratch. Lol

Queen Susan the Gentle (highqueensusanofcairparavel) I prefer is a whole lot easier. If I write too much, I get writers cramp.

message 14: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Yes, so do I.

message 18: by Poindextεrr. (new)

Poindextεrr. (carpe_diem) I prefer to type 100%. I already write too much in school as it as, and consequently have a callus on my finger from holding my pencil too tight. >_<

So, yeah, typing.

message 19: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) I would type a lot too if I had a callus. :)

message 20: by Poindextεrr. (new)

Poindextεrr. (carpe_diem) It's not my fault. I blame my Geometry teacher.

message 21: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Haha! At least it's not your fault. :D

message 22: by Ameena (new)

Ameena Adel i TYPE TYPE TYPE
i do everything by computer

but in the end it depends on the subject
if its something not that important i dont do it neatly and stuff

message 23: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) Understandable! :)

Queen Susan the Gentle (highqueensusanofcairparavel) My handwriting not what you call the best. I do everything on the computer except eat.

message 25: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) LOL! That sounds like a lot of fun. I would probably be on the computer all day if my mom and brother wouldn't make me get off :)

message 26: by Ayunda (new)

Ayunda (ayundabs) yeah, me too. I prefer typing than writing if it comes to writing a story/novel.

message 27: by Zakiya (new)

Zakiya LadyWings (zladywings) For things like that, I'm not really sure. I usually have to do it for school, so I just write it. But I haven't really had a lot of experience with writing stories and novels.

Queen Susan the Gentle (highqueensusanofcairparavel) I know, computers seem to be my life. My mom wants to put me on a limit though.
