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.

Pen and/or pencil, or keyboard?When you write, do you prefer the action of handwriting, giving you thinking time and brooding time and chewing the end of the pen/cil time? Or do you prefer the quickness of typing on a 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...

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

What are your thoughts on this? I do use a pen name and I'm really torn about it. On the one hand it's convenient so that my private/public life are kept separate and I find I don't have to censor myself while writing. On the other hand, I sometimes wonder if I am not cheating...
