Have you tried writing?
It's a freakin' writing blog bright-boy. What the heck do you think I'm here for, your dashing good looks?
That's not what I meant. My dad used to say, "There's a tool for every job".
Great, now he's talking about his daddy issues. I'm outta here.
As writers we have to choose our writing tools wisely. Thanks to the latest word processing software, now we can move huge chunks of text with minimal effort, track changes, leave comments and reminders, search for problem words and phrases, and send drafts to our friends and enemies with ease (yes, some of my drafts are bad enough I think they could be used against my enemies, numerous though they may be).
But what about actual writing? When's the last time you sat down with an actual pen and paper and wrote out a story?
If it's been a while, I encourage you to give it another spin. There's something wonderfully visceral about abandoning your laptop and writing out a story longhand. Personally, I find it very effective to write out a first draft longhand and then make changes as I transcribe what I've written onto the computer as a second draft. I even have a special writing journal (several actually) with special mechanical pencils and erasers that I only use for creative writing (lest they find their way into the pen drawer...WHERE DID WE GET ALL OF THESE PENS!?!?!)
Give it a try some time.
