I've always said I can't write by hand anymore. I need to sit in front of a computer to have the ideas flow. Unfortunately its also way too easy to get distracted when sitting in front of the computer - ooh look, an email, while I'm at it I'll check Facebook etc etc ;)
On Tuesday I took my little netbook with me to write with while I sat in the car and waited for B's drama class to finish. Its been so long since I've used it though that the battery was flat. So I was forced to *gasp* write by hand in my 'handy dandy notebook'. I got about 300 words written in 30 minutes - a bit slower than on the computer but with the added advantage of silencing my inner editor. Its hard to make too many changes while you're writing by hand, so I was just writing. I typed it up last night and made some changes as I was typing - first polish.
So I tried it again last night - put the computer aside and pulled out the pen and paper, then typed it up. Again, it worked pretty well. I think I might be on to something here... It also has the added advantage that you can whip out a notebook & pen pretty much anywhere and not get a second look, but pulling out a computer just looks pretentious :)
