The pink pen writes again

The pink pen went to work yesterday on a short story for the first time in a while. I've spent a lot of the recent months on BTL and NRIMH which has involved working with the computer rather than the pen. I'm not sure where the story will end up because it's different to my usual stuff. I do have a market in mind but I'll need to see how it turns out.
I must say that I enjoy words developing from the nib of a pen much more than them appearing at the tap of a finger tip. It was fun to get the pen out again.

Really interesting, Colette. I very rarely write long-hand now - only if I think of something in the middle of the night, or sometimes on holiday etc. Since the early days of PCs, I find the words come more naturally when writing straight onto the screen, but it's nice that we're all different and that some people prefer other ways. Good luck with the story. x

I think its watching the words form on a clean piece of paper that I like so much even though my handwriting is sometimes a bit ropey.
