I originally wrote this blog in the car on a pad of paper, long hand…which I am now typing in the blog. Odd, but writing long hand makes this feel more personal, like a journal or a diary.
Today, Jimmy totally looked at me!!!11!!! xoxox
Anyway, it got me thinking…
Would my writing change if I wrote the whole book by hand first? Would my writing style change? My voice? Would I throw the pen across the room and give up forever?
I’m sure my style of writing would change. Although I outline my WIPs, it’s loose and not with a lot of detail. But I have the luxury of easily going back 20 pages and adding a back story once it reveals itself to me. That would be much more difficult (not to mention sloppy) should I try to do it longhand. But then again, maybe I would be more focused in my writing, more organized…
Do you ever write longhand? Does it help you? Annoy you?
