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.
