Do you use pen/pencil and paper or an electronic device to jot notes?
I still use writing tablets, little note pads, post-its, pens and pencils to jot things down. I sometimes use the sticky notes on my desk/lap tops for reminders. What do you use?
Yes, I do. There are several tablets in my desk drawers, pencils and pens, too. I use these for jotting down creative ideas. For household reminders -doctor apts that need to be made, supplies to be picked up at the store- I use sticky notes.
I always use notebooks. I find my creativity stiffled when I try and write on a computer. Always a notebook first. I might kill more trees that way, but it works better for me.
I use an electronic device--my laptop to take notes. I find it faster to type as opposed to write. Every single thing that I write is incomprehensible when I'm rushing with my notes. So I exclusively type notes on my laptop.
I always use paper or some form of tablet or sticky. It's easier for me, since my typing skills really suck & it would take a lot longer to try to entering it in some type if electronic device. In this instance, I stay old school.
I find it easier to physically write something down and notice that I remember it better than using an electronic device. Typing on a computer seems to simply reduce my creativity.
Yes, constantly. Sticky notes and note pads are my favorites. And to jot things down a pencil, followed by a fountain pen.
Before I put a Hub-page together a few sheets of notes are needed. To do this I take a notepad and the basic information I need and scribble my notes down while I have a coffee in a MacDonald's a couple of miles away. Having got used to ignoring the screeches and wails of younger kids and the yells of the older ones as well as the younger ones' parents, I just plant myself at a table and scribble away.
I might get a half-dozen sheets done on pads before I set off back home on the bus with the shopping I did earlier. It's hard doing it at home because there are too many distractions, what with the phone going off, one of the cats coming and sitting on my lap or getting up to do a coffee for the wife.
Once I've finished my notes - after a couple of visits to MacDonald's - then I sit down and knock off another page here, together with images, or add some more pages to the current book (at least five). I'll be lucky to get to bed before 1 am (GMT).
definitely pencils and an exercise book. I always jot down my notes for hubs, articles, things to do, etc. Electronic stuff are always not around me. Troublesome to reach for them too
I always use pen and notepad as I an write quicker than type and easy to cross out and edit until almost the finished product. I usually make a couple of final changes when entering it on the computer but not many.
I like to use a pen and notepads. I have quick access to what I need without having to start up my computer.

When writing on paper, do you prefer to use pen or pencil?Just a simple question I am curious about. I personally prefer pen, because it is easier to see and it slides more smoothly than a pencil. Also, sometimes pencils get dull and you have to sharpen them, or they tip can break. I don't like it...

Do you write with a pen or a computer?When my husband first suggested around 1990 that I use a computer for writing, I cried when I tried. I told him the thoughts got from my head to the paper through my pen and I resisted. So for all these years I tied myself to the computer. Only...
