Do you use notes to write, or do you compose at the keyboard?
I have no set waay of doing these things. If I get an idea for a story or article. I'll jot down any useful ideas about it that come to mind, such as general concept, ccgaracters, location etc. Then I will probably write a rough draft in longhand. After that I will turn to the word processor..
I write short, one sentance notes on index file cards (5"x4") then use them to add flesh to what I am writing at the keyboard.
When I get an idea for a Hub I'll usually write down some quick, basic "scratch" notes on a piece of paper, then later on I type directly into the Hub capsules.
I usually assemble handwritten notes and compose everything in Word first before cutting and pasting into hubs. I match up graphics after I finish the text.
By keyboard, mainly because I can type faster than I can write
Drat out notes and after re-checking then I write at the keyboard the easy way for me. I have to know what exactly I am writing about it makes more sense to me.
I try and publish one Hub a week, Usually on weekends. Earlier in the week I try and get the idea. I use my commute time (45 min a day) to compose a rough draft of the Hub in my head. Thurs night I sit down and compose it onto Word. Friday night, In usually edit, gather photos and set up the HUB. i try to publish Saturday. At least thats the way I try to do it. It doesn't always work out like that

I am curious if people still write by hand or has everyone switched to the keyboard permanently? I still write by hand. I take notes, write on the side of my books, I often write on anything on which I can write in order to remember a though (my memory is terrible at times). I also write...
