For me, writing my first draft in a notebook is best.
I know every writer has their own way of doing things, but the thought of staring at a blank, white screen fills me with terror. It’s bad enough staring at the pages of a blank notebook!
I find writing my first draft down and then typing it up on the PC, so that it can (hopefully) then be polished and knocked into shape , makes me think I am more in control (ha!) of my writing.
It also makes the writing process, for me at least, seem a bit more creative and adaptable somehow. The physicality of carrying around my notebook and pens is a comforting thought.
I have a brown box file on my desk and it is currently groaning with three new notebooks that I will be filling with my ramblings at some point. The notebook I have got lined up to use next, is covered in multi-coloured love hearts (Thank you Amanda – it’s lovely!)
My current notebook is almost filled with the first 19 Chapters of my WIP….two empty pages left! (Kind of sad in a way!)
Happy Writing everyone and whatever way you choose to write, I hope it brings you as much joy as it does me!
