When I first started writing, I declared I would never, ever compose by typing on a word processor. It felt soulless, and back when I was lucky to reach a top speed of 20 WPM, longhand writing was usually faster. Since that time I've been able to reach an official typing speed of ZOOM ZOOM, and I've discovered the benefits of being able to type ideas almost as fast as I can think them. Still, I've determined there's some part of my brain that works differently when I'm writing ideas down. It's especially useful for hammering out creative concepts, as opposed to setting down logical thought (or at least what passes for logical thought in my loopy laundry-faerie mind). And I need to finish a particular creative project.
So. Off to the notebook. I'll see you back here later.
