Does anyone use pen and paper to write their stories or hubs, before typing it straight to the computer?
For articles, no. But for writing stories I always jot things down on pen and paper. I feel like the actual motion of writing and the swerving of the pen helps bring out my creativity.
Yes, I will often write the first few paragraphs using pen and paper before I get on the computer.
As a writer, these two tools are vital and used all the time especially when you are not near a computer.
I do not use paper for writing out drafts, but I do keep a pad and pen handy for jotting down ideas.
Although I don't use them for the actual writing, I do keep paper and pens handy for writing down ideas. A notebook sits next to my computer that I use often for planning, brainstorming, etc. Without a pen and paper, I couldn't keep my writing organized.
As a matter of a fact I do I am starting to focus on recipes a lot and I write them down as I am cooking. If it turns out to meet my expectations then I will type them up here on hubpages.
I have finally transitioned to a computer. But if we go off the grid for awhile I don't take my computer so I rely on paper and pen again. I also write all of my ideas down in a pocket notepad.
I use MS word to draft my hubs. Even though earlier at some point I thought of using pen and paper but never done.
I use pen and paper to write my hubs:) I believe that for me it is easier that way because that way I can gather my own ideas and facts fast and easier.
usually i start off using pen/pencil and note book, and then it leads off to have written and the rest written on my computer. To me its easier to use computer once i get started on a story or topic .
I always do. I approach writing hubs like any other written task I have. I brainstorm and/or outline on paper first. I do any needed research, like consulting my bird guides and hand write the facts I will incorporate. Then I start typing.
I have found that I discard a lot of information and ideas along the way. So having a truly hard copy is great for going back to reference after I have deleted items I have typed for a particular work. I also keep a folder on my computer labeled "Unused Pieces." Anything I delete that I originally like goes in here.
I still do the traditional method of scribbling on paper before I type on the computer as most of the time inspiration comes at odd moments. So, I will simply grab my pen and paper to scribble and then I will take my time to input them on computer.
It is still the best way to have it on paper even though technology is so advanced that we should not be doing so.
I use pen and paper to draft my hubs and jot down all the points and facts that I want to cover in a hub. When I've got all this down on paper then I type up my hub. If I go out I always carry my pen and notebook with me for ideas when I am on the go.
because we live in an innovative world and everything is happening online..
but sometimes i use my notepad and pen..
I do sometimes. I have a journal I carry around for ideas. If the idea is really strong, I will write the story and then type it.
I use pen and paper to make note of good topic. When it comes to writing, I think it saves time -- write it once in a text file, then copy and paste.
Even so, some writers do better with pen/pencil and paper. From what I've heard, it involves a certain connection they feel using this writing method.

Does anyone else hand write the first drafts of their novels/short stories?I know I can't be the only one who just can't make consistent content unless I'm writing it all out longhand. Otherwise I just stare at the screen for hours at a time.

I recently read some reviews on Consumer Affairs, which were absolutely devasting and have got me a little worried. I was wondering if anyone else wrote at similar sites prior to HubPages and why they made the switch, and if they had thought about going back.

I'm just coming back after a several year hiatus, and one of the most exciting things that started when I was here was the HubChallenge. Originally, it was 30 hubs in 30 days. Now I see it's changed to either updating your hubs or 30 hubs in 60 days. I tried the original once, and I failed...

Are you feel more creative when you're writing if you use a pen and paper instead of the computer?
