Quick question for all you writers out there.
What is your method for writing?
In case anyone is confused as to the question, then I will post my own, and hopefully this will give you an idea of what I’m asking.
First of all having my phone with me is a must, when ever I get a new idea for a story of part of one, then I add it immediately to my phone’s notebook app.
I also have many different notepads in which I write my ideas down in, long before I turn on the computer to write. I find my self drawing charts, making maps, writing down names of people, places and things that I would like to include in my games.
I carry all my files on a U.S.B stick, that way whenever I see a computer I can plug it in and start writing. This have helped me to write many extra pages. -although I find that the content that comes from such rushed writing often isn’t very good.
I really enjoy writing outside, in my backyard on the laptop, in the car at work on my lunch break and anywhere else out in the open. I find that the ideas that come are usually BIG ones, but I get exhausted easily when writing outside.
On the other hand when I write on the computer inside, I find that I can write twice as fast. I don’t know if it’s the physical keyboard or just that I’m more comfortable sitting at the computer but I can usually push out twice as many pages. I do find however that my grammar is usually horrible and there are many typos when using my PC inside.
And of course I always, always, always read my stories OUT LOUD. I’m amazed at how different everything sounds when I read it in my head as opposed to reading it out loud.
Anyway, what is your writing style?
