How Do You Write? posted 30 Oct 2004, 15:10 by skotch, Commoner

Hiya Scott, When you write, do you use a typewriter, computer or pen and paper? I was wondering because I remember reading that Clive Barker only writes in pen and paper, transcribing it to type only after the book is finished. He said that his thoughts come more clearly when writing with pen. Whatever your writing style, could you give a reason as to why you choose that over the others, ie. habit, clarity, etc...?

Hi, Skotch. I pretty much exclusively use my decrepid computer, which I now refer to as my 'third lung' to do justice to the profundity of our co-dependency. If it weren't for the computer, I don't think I'd be a writer. I seem to have a problem writing things in a linear fashion. Which is probably why I wrote this line first... :wink: view post
