Notepads

I don't know why, since I do pretty much everything on the computer, but when I want to write fic, I get more done if I do it in a note book rather than typing it out.

Of course, this means more work, since I'll eventually have to transcribe it to the computer (assuming I ever finish something) but whatever, it works for me. I think it's maybe because being on a computer provides too many distractions and I end doing things like updating my journal instead of writing :P

Still, I feel I was somewhat productive today, since I started off wanting to read an AI/Terminator cross over, to wanting to write one but having no idea what it'd be about, to a full plot line with the first scene written out.

I'm trying to keep things short, in the interest of actually finishing it (unlike my other Terminator cross over that I abandoned at 10K :( Maybe one day it'll be finished).

Comments

I tend to do that too, write on a notepad instead of on the computer. Or half and half. I figure as long as I'm writing, it's all good.
It's not that I think writing in a notebook is bad, just surprising since I have an unnatural attachment to computers. I am kind of excited to actually be writing something. Hopefully I can actually finish and post this unlike most of the other fic I've started and never finish. Why, oh why are all my plot bunnies novel length? This one I'm trying to keep shorter.
