Heh, I love at moment, too, Ysavvryl. Though, as an editor, I cant leave the ones that make red and green lines on. Drives me insane. (Not as badly as Microsoft Word for Windows 7. I can't last ten minutes on that program before I want to go blow something up. I'm a really calm person usually, but that thing raises my blood pressure like nothing else.)

I'm glad I'm not the only one who uses regular paper, too. I do it because I just can't write on my computer well. I get too distracted. (I'm one of those people who could click the 'random' button on Wikipedia all day. Too much interesting information...)

Nothing beats a good old pen with ink and a pad of paper.

i have a neverending love for paper and pencils/pens. they're all i ever wanna buy when i go to a store pretty much... beside play-doh and milk....
so since im writing on paper... i'll probably end up typing a lot later into microsoft word. =p
i would be a geek but maybe i cant afford it. ?
good luck mang!
edit: sry im a tree killer... i think of my love for paper all the time and feel a bit guilty....


Then does that makes me a tree killer too?
I have a MS Word right here but I still prefer to get down and dirty with ink - sometimes with lead.
I like writing more than typing. Sure, it is easier to edit in a computer but for me it is still easier to have your letters when they are written.

Yeah! haha, I don't feel too dirty when I use pen and paper... cept for the killing trees part and sometimes I get ink or pencil on my pinky. 3nodding Having paper also help bc I can start drawing a seen or a character out next to it asap. That helps me with descriptions lots.
YOU know... I'm becoming more interested in OP's emac or whatever it is. I think I'll give it a spin bc even though I write on paper first, I type it all up at the end of the day. I actually end up changing and adding a lot this way.
and oh yezzz, i like writing more that typing as wellzzzzorzz. blaugh
emotion_yatta and sry i think i forgot to respond to your post sooner, though im not sure. good lucks.

Nothing can beat Microsoft Office Word. I use it for writing long documents (novels), I usually use the "Draft" view, then hide the Ribbon so I don't get distracted and it's really nice. smile
I use Microsoft Word (freeee version), notebook/pencil between classes or just when I want to get away from distractions/lie on my bed and write, and.. I just downloaded writemonkey because you all got me intrigued about it.

Off to fiddle with it. XD And hopefully increase word count!

I've got my Open Office running, and my handy-dandy wireless keyboard so I can sit in my natural "halfway-sliding-out-of-the-chair" position. (:

I'm using a combination of Open Office and yWriter.
Seriously, I'm using a pen and paper... gonk

But I average about 175 words per page and so far I have 22 pages done.
