Do you ever write your stories on paper?

:iconliterallybeanie:
Literallybeanie Featured By Owner 5 days ago
Honestly as I practice my cursive and the dredged calligraphy, I started to realize how fun it is to write on paper. Though I honestly never write my stories and keep them on paper you know? Then again i find so much enjoyment with writing on paper that I might just start doing it, but on to the question.

Do you write your stories on paper? And i mean completed stories, all in all on paper.

The only time I actually touch a pen nowadays is only when I scribble some of my ideas into my notebook. I know some other creative people who do write their drafts on paper, via pen or even a classic typewriter, but I never understood why would you do that as it only sets you up for double work when editing the draft.

I used to, but I would always get bored of writing it after a few pages, so I stopped doing it. I actually rarely write by hand anymore because I find writing by hand to be tedious and kinda boring.

Before I had my own computer (so like 20-25 years ago) I would write multi-chapter stories by hand on loose-leaf pages in a 3-ring binder, but now I just type it all into my word processor of choice. I did handwrite the rough draft of the first chapter of a story a few years back because I had a deadline and my laptop's power brick decided it was the perfect time to up and die and it was going to be at least a week before the replacement arrived. You know you've been doing most of your writing via keyboard when you catch yourself reflexively hitting a phantom CTRL+S several times during the process.

Personally, I do a rough draft/notes on paper, then do further drafts including the posted version on computer.(IPad, laptop) However, I would not be adverse to doing one in physical written form in the right circumstances. Years ago, I did one just so as a handwritten book of my self-created childhood stories, a gift to my audience and collaborator of one, i.e., my sister.

Only brief ideas. I keep a journal next to my bed for last minute ideas for whatever story I'm working on. I get my best ideas as I'm falling asleep.

I can't write by hand for very long, though. My hand starts to feel like it's burning really badly not but a minute or so into it. That, and I can't read my own handwriting unless I know what I've written; it's more for that the act of writing something down helps me remember it, not necessarily what's written itself.

A lot of my stories have started out written in notebooks, that way I can cross things out and draw arrows and make notes in a free-er way than when typing on my tablet. Then when I type it up I can go through a secondary editing process as I type.

Yeah it seems a lot folks here use handwritten as a draft or ideas for the main typed story. Though may i ask, have you ever posted a story on DA handwritten?

Only a tiny bit of one! A few years back I posted a little snippet of my NaNoWriMo plans with doodles on it.

I'm in front of my computer most of the day every day (before anyone asks, yes I do get out and exercise and such. I have intensive body building workouts twice a week and always walk to the grocery store and back when restocking) so as a result I almost never use paper since I simply open up or create a word doc and just jot ideas in there.

I have written basic outlines for stories and such on paper before, though I think more than anything is that it simply comes down to being an alternative in situations where you may not have ready access to a device, which is perfectly fine (though there is a higher risk of losing or misplacing it rather than having it always in an expected place as well as having the ability to apply security blocks if needed). Also, I find writing extensively puts more strain on my wrist than typing does, but that's just from my personal experience. It may be different for others.

but but to reenact the death note scene and pause to take a potato chip and eat it! www.youtube.com/watch?v=XrpdFm… but yeah I do paper (later type to drive so the rough draft can have scribbles and things can flow freely without pause and screen saver), granted got a large stash now, but the paper company could be proud I kept them in business.

did a few times, but moved them over to my blog and cleaned up my journal a bit.  but I must do weird pictures because you're not the first person to mention that.  it's not fetish, porn, age down, adult diapers, feet... so I can see how that's weird.

Couldn´t you use a scanning program, which is able to convert handwritten notes into text files?

There should be plenty ways available to do this, even if you just use your smartphone to make a photo from your handwritten notes:

The idea alone makes me cry. The pain, oh the pain (in my hands and writs).
I would LOVE, LOVE to pick back up old school drawing equipment. Heck, I even tried, bought all the goods, pens, inks, paper, drawing table and in the end I gave it all away. :( 

I envy those who (still) can.

Yes. It's the only way I do write my stories, on paper. Like you said I find it a lot more enjoyable; and I find my story ideas seem to flow a lot more freely writing that way.

Not more artistic; but I've found it definitely lets me be more creative and expressive. I just can't get that same feeling by working on a computer.
