I really have no choice. My handwriting has become so bad, I could pass as a doctor just by my signature.
When I was younger I actually designed letterhead, used calligraphic pens and printed notes so crisply they were ready for framing. Forget that now.
I was excited with my electric, then my selectric, a huge sewing machine sized “laptop”, WordStar, word, open office, back to word, and then I wondered if the old school method was was better. I questioned whether the time to carefully consider each word before inclusion was more creative than this cut and paste world.
For one brief moment I thought maybe the ink and wooden pencil process was better. Then I looked at the screen, saw a dozen red underlines. I could read what I typed. I could fix misspelling with a right click. I was not fiddling with a backspace to over-type using a sticky type remover or (OMG) getting “White Out” on my fingers.
Are computers better for writers? Hell yes. What was I thinking?
lots of good stuff
