Question for today: Do you prefer to edit on your computer or on paper?
I’ve always been one to edit (and write) on my computer. In an effort to save paper and time (I can type faster than I write by hand), I’ve always gone to my computer. But recently, I was working with this one chapter that kept bothering me, and I decided to change things up and edit it on paper rather than continue to use my computer. It made such a difference!
I don’t know if it was just being able to see the pages in a different format, or if it was being able to physically cross things out and rewrite with my pen, but it really helped my editing.
I used to think that using my computer was the best way to go, but now my eyes have been open to the wonderful world of Pen & Paper!
I will probably continue to edit mostly on my computer (it’d be a lot of paper if I tried to print every single page to edit!), but I do think I’ll start printing out those problem chapters/scenes to see if it helps me edit more effectively.
What about you? Do you edit solely on your computer or on paper? Or maybe you use a combination of both? Let me know in the comments…
