So, how do you write your drafts? And why do you it that way? My first book was written on my first computer. This is not a coincidence. Without modern writing tools and the ability to freely move paragraphs around and make corrections I probably wouldn't be a writer. I love the freedom to change my mind.
In fact freedom is generally important to me in writing. My first book was written on a generation one MacIntosh which I could easily pick up and move around the apartment to suit my current whim. Much of it was written with my feet up on the couch, the keyboard in my lap, and the computer off to my right on the coffee table. Terrible ergonomics, but ideal for my thinking process.
Now I do all my writing on a laptop and I have for as long as I've been able to afford one. This means I can write on the porch, at the coffee shop, in bed, sitting in the corner under a stairwell at one of my wife's physics conferences, even tucked away behind a display at the Air and Space Museum in Washington D.C. and I've written happily in all those places.
On the other hand, I know people who draft long hand with a pen, on an actual typewriter, using voice recognition software, or dictating into a tape recorder while walking in the mountains. Everyone does it differently and we all have our reasons. The only thing that really matters is that the writing actually gets done.
So, what about you? I'm endlessly fascinated about the way writers work and their reasons for doing it the way they do it.
