What do you love to write with? A pen and a piece of lined paper? A sparkle pencil and a special notebook? A key board? A marker?
Do you feel like you write better with one writing instrument then another?
I know I do. I feel like I write differently with the different writing instruments and so I use them to that advantage. I personally love a pen and any kind of paper when writing a scene for the first time or writing down that idea I just had in the shower. (I know that happens to lots of us) But after that I have got to get it into the computer. I haven't written a whole book with pen and paper, but bits and pieces are always done that way for me.
Then after my story is in the computer the fun with a pen really begins. A nice red or purple pen. And highlighters, and extra scratch paper. All come out with my freshly printed draft. (Insert evil cackling) I very much love to see my first draft covered in red. I admit it.
I am not much of a pencil user, but I know people who love pencils the best.
If you haven't thought about it before, maybe take a second. What do you like to write with, at what part of your writing process? Do you have a preference, or does it not matter as long as whatever you have writes?
The good news is its all good. Just something fun to think about.
