    For writers or non writers here, If you write articles or content for your blogs and forums, then your hands are accustomed to using the keyboard?

    Do you feel it is more convenient when working on the PC than writing with pen and paper?

    For me these days its definitely the keyboard for writing up content as you can apply edits and changes easily where as with good ole pen and paper that becomes some what messy... besides you'll have to type all of that up on a keyboard afterwards... I still use pen and paper all of the time - but that tends to be quick notes, diagrams as part of brain storming or planning etc..

    I remember when I was at Uni it was all pretty much pen and paper back then, the internet was barely in its infancy and once I graduated I had a hard time adjusting to using the keyboard in the work place lol... Fast forward almost two decades since and it sure feels I would be lost without one...

    I prefer using keyboard rather than writing it down on paper first. Because there's no reason to use pen and paper anyway.

    And when I'm outside, I use my phone.

    I'd also have to vote for the keyboard in favor of the pen and paper, which now seem to be pretty outdated :D

    I find it so much easier to type rather than write down with a pen, I know keyboards like the back of my hand for such a long time now, I actually got to the point where I write so much faster on a keyboard.

    Honestly, I did both hand writing and keyword writing but the most frequently is on keyword. I love to write with SM word because I've bough an software from ProWriting to help in proofs my article.

    Also, after that I Humingway for restructures my content to make it readable. I'm a poor English writer thus I need lots of tool for improving my writing..

    It is way more convenient to me for a keyboard than pen and paper because I can type atleast 81 WPM where when I write it is way slower. It's easier for me to type then to write and since I have a printer I could just print off what I do on my computer for much less time.

    81 WPM (word per minute) ?
    the result is really impressing. :Reallyexcited:
    I typed rather fast, can be higher this number
    Perhaps, we need to open a game to find who types fastest on the forum :Victory:

    :DD:

    You can try yours here if you really wanted to. I know I can't write that fast on pen and paper though :p

    Call me old-fashioned, but I do still use my notebooks and pen/pencils when I'm writing up blogs, or when a story hits me, or when a poem hits. I love using a keyboard as well, because I type pretty fast as well. So, I'd have to call it a tie. Most of my stories and writings have been done on paper with pen first, then put on the computer. Keyboards are definitely quicker, editing wise, but I will still use my pen and paper when my muse hits.... :) :Agx::Computer:

    I love writing! I also love to write using colorful pens on paper and just doodle. But when we talk about article writing and posting it online, I prefer to use the keyboard already so that its easier to post online instead of writing it on a paper first then typing it. Its somehow a hassle.

    For me most of the time, I prefer pen and paper because I feel like my mind is working properly when writing on a piece of paper.There are sometimes when suddenly something came up to my mind and I have to jot it down in the paper so I won't forget it.I have my diary book and I love writing there whatever crosses my mind.I write about how I feel, my plans and even small secrets.

    However, writing on the computer is easier today with better advantage compared to pen and paper but I won't say that it is more convenient.I still prefer the old fashion way.
