â€œWriting, to me, is simply thinking through my fingers.â€ â€” Isaac Asimov
Yes, yes, yes.
For me, too.
That’s why there is paper everywhere and I often transfer paper writing to the computer.
Typing keys (while useful, helpful, fast, and efficient) is not the same. I must write. You may call me medieval if you must, though I do consider that a compliment you know, but I need to slide a pen across paper for my thoughts to get out of my head and into the rest of the world.
One thought on “What is Writing?”
I, too, enjoy writing long-hand. I also find there’s a huge difference if one revises long-hand or on a word processor. The long-handed revision seems more intense and more economical because if I’m expending so many ergs, I really, really want all that energy to count. Word processing is fine, though, for that final wax and buffing.
