Writers use to write on paper and then type on a typewriter. Now writers write on paper and then on a computer. Many writers only write on their desk top or laptop, instead of on paper. The question I have in my mind is which is more effective. Is writing on a piece of paper first, better and more effective than solely writing on a computer? Of course, many writers find one way better than the other. But which way is easier? I always write on paper first before transferring the words to my laptop. I decided to experiment to see which is easier and more effective; writing on paper or the computer only. I also tried to write key short notes on my smart phone instead of on a small writing pad.
After doing this experiment, I found that I enjoyed writing on electronic devices at first. Then one day, I found myself distracted and made a mistake by accidentally pressing the wrong button that deleted one section of my notes. On another day, when writing on my laptop, I was rushing to do something that I needed to do, I made a mistake and exit out of word document when the computer said save and accidentally pressed the “no” button. Now, this does not usually happen. I am very good at saving on my computer. I am rarely distracted, but I realized writing on paper first was better, especially on busy days. I found it easier to go back to my notebook as a backup.
In my opinion, writing only on a computer and not on paper looks easier, because you don’t have to write the same thing again. I believe it is easier and more effective writing on paper first. If you’re not ready to print out the whole novel manuscript or any kind of writing after you type it and something happens to the computer and even a flash drive, paper is always handy. After I finish typing, I make sure to print out the hard copy, which is on paper. Writing on paper first is easier and more effective. Again, this does not work for every writer, but I think it is the best way.
