I've spent the last few weeks doing something I never thought I'd do - writing out the last few chapters to my story with paper and pen. I didn't start writing seriously until a few years ago, and I've always used my computer. I type pretty quickly - not lightning speed, but fast enough to keep up with my thoughts. I certainly type much more quickly than I write with a pen.
But, you know what? It was fun! My handwriting is loopy & more than a little messy when I'm writing quickly, so I used every 2nd line. I even went out & bought a nice little notebook made from sustainable sugar cane which had a nice hard cover. Easy to sit on my bed or couch and write.
And the best part of all is the ending that I've been stuck on is flowing. I made some changes to my airy-fairy plan as I went. And it's working! I'm not done - and I'll need to go back in and revise (obviously), but I'm happy with how it's going. It's been a really nice surprise!
(The down side is - I'm going to have to do it again. My computer issues are not the battery - it's something else by the looks of it. I've got to send it BACK to Repair Land. Things get shipped out Monday, so I'm hanging on to it until the last minute on Sunday. Then I'll be out of commission ... again. I'm SOOOOO frustrated with the whole thing right now!)
So, do you ever do any of your writing by hand? How do you like it?
