A week or so ago I had thirty minutes to kill before a work conference. I still had scenes to write for Lucas’s story so I pulled out a notebook and started writing.
I never wished for my computer more.
Back in the day, I used to write all my stories by hand. It was routine to sit at my kitchen table while Bubbles napped and write until she woke. Once it was finished, I’d transfer it to the computer. Today I can’t even imagine writing a whole story by hand.
As the words flew through my mind – I had finally found Kate and Lucas’s voices, thank God (http://wp.me/p3177g-px) – my hand couldn’t keep up. In my head, I was two paragraphs ahead – completely stressing I’d forget something. I desperately wanted my hand to catch up with my head.
Or to grow a couple more hands.
What about you? Do you prefer to write long hand?
