    So I’m not the only one who writes by hand and then types it on the computer.
    I do wish that Wacom would create a proper printing pad that connects to tablets, phones and computers. It’d prefer it to the keyboard

    It’s pleasing to see I’m in good company in writing first drafts by hand.

    The main reason I do it is because screens are distracting. Not only is temptation a click away, but also the blue light interferes with my sleep patterns, which may be great for a writing binge but not so good for the next day. And writing a novel is a marathon, not a sprint.

    I’ve been writing longhand for a while now. It really does make a difference. I tried out a couple of typewriters, but I don’t think I’ve found the right one.

    It’s worth noting that the distraction-free experience is also one of the inspirations for the Astrohaus Freewrite, which as I recall has been met with some derision here.

    Me, I think whatever gets the words on the page is worth exploring.
