Which one you use to write your article or something like that? And you prefer pen or keyboard?
I use a pen to write down notes when i am researching, then i write it on the computer.
Most of the time it's the keyboard, but I write much better when I use a pen.
Mostly keyboard but sometimes pen and note book or even the back of an old envelope.
I'm an otherwise right-handed person who is left-handed when I write; so although I can certainly use a pen, there's some kind of little thing that goes on that makes me focus more on the mechanics of writing than on just letting the thoughts come out if I use a pen. I don't even know how other left-handed people hold their pen the way they do, because I hold mine like a right-handed person (which feels right but probably doesn't help with the mechanics of the whole business ).
Oddly, I'm more comfortable writing mirror image; but since the whole left to right thing is so ingrained in me, there's something "off" about trying to write that way too. (Well, I know know... It's just plain weird. ) All else aside, I have to make a real effort to make my handwriting neat (and I'll never make it pretty). So all in all, it's just an unpleasant and ugly affair for me to write by hand.
Now, the typewriter: 100 wpm, thoughts straight from brain to keyboard. It's almost as fast for me to write as to have an in-person discussion. So,
keyboard, keyboard, keyboard. Thank God for keyboards!!
It depends what I'm writing. I'm not a huge fan of sitting at a keyboard, so I sometimes write first, and use the keyboard when complete.
Sally, my filing system for the odd napkins and envelopes, etc. is a huge paper clip on my desk! If it's a poem, I'll keep the original in my 'poetry box.'
I've looked at using the speak to type programs such as Dragon..anyone else try this?
It's saves the fingers from over use..
keyboard all the way. so easy to cut past etc. but something I love writing the traditional way!
I prefer pen to keyboard in the sense of writing with ease, but then ?I do prefer keyboard when it comes to how neat the writing is!
I always enjoy writing things on paper. So I always have some pen near me. on the fly, I can jot things down possibly to use in a hub.

The pen is a thing of the past do you agree? Has the computer keyboard really took over writing in the ink pen?

Today no author writes using a pen, but they are expressing themselves by using keyboards. Then why we know them as writers?

What are the advantages and disadvantages of using a pen name as a writer on HubPages (or as a writer in general)? Also, does using a pen name impact your ability to defend/claim your work if it's stolen?

I find it interesting when writers has variety of writing styles. But what is more ideal simple or complex.

I find that most of the comments on hp are either thanking or reassuring the writer. I think hubbers believe it's worth more petting the writer on the back than telling him or her if something feels wrong. This way we...
