Not just what we write on, but our habits and rituals and, even in some cases, how prolific we are or aren't. Yes?
What did you write your first novel on?
My first was written into 7 thick college-ruled spiral notebooks in pencil, and then promptly typed into a new Sears' Brother word processing typewriter with a Daisy wheel and the little window that showed words as you typed, and memory, and a ribbon that ERASED stuff.
I was cutting edge. LMAO!
Those were the days, when some of the best raw stuff that ever would came gushing out of me, before I knew all the rules and the bones of writing, before my "innocence" was taken away, if you will. I wouldn't give those times away for anything. Although now, try to take my Windows 7 away and you'll likely draw back a stump.
What prompted me to ask that question?
This article here, that's what. New Frontiers in Writer Tech, at Book View Cafe.
Give it a read, and tell me what you think.
