Do you prefer to write your first drafts on paper or on the computer?

    That's an interesting process! I have a box of ideas that I hash out on paper or Word when the time comes. Thanks for sharing!

    Me too! I have file folders with ideas, drafts, and other things to work off. Thanks for sharing! I always like to see how you do things and although it might be different from your side of things, over here it looks like you've got it together!

    That makes total sense! The internet distractions (Twitter, Pandora, Google, that beautiful butterfly that just flew by) really knock me down sometimes. I find I write better and with more focus if I write everything out by hand first.

    That's a good point. It is easy to scratch out and draw lines on paper, but it takes longer to revise and edit on Word.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Hello! So this explains why your hubs are so great to read! I try to do the same. The internet can feel faceless and bland. By imbuing our words with personality, our readers will feel much more drawn in and connected.

    See you around! :)

    That's how I do it much of the time! It can be hard to figure out the proper format or order. That's one of my goals, which means it is probably time to write a hub on it. Thanks for sharing! :)

    That sounds like a good way to do it! I like the idea of having two windows open; that ought to simplify the process rather well. Thanks for sharing!

    Hello Larry.

    Sorry to hear about your son's eye sight. You are quite right the times they are a changing (Bob Dylan). I found my typo's and I thank you for pointing it out to me

    The question, every one has their own way of doing things, good or bad.
