We have such a vast array of tools today to help us with our writing. Computers provide ways in which we can speed up the writing process with spelling, grammar and formatting all part of the package. Traditional pen and paper are fantastic for those moments of instantaneous inspiration. Voice recorders are useful for notes on the run. Each type of writing tool has it's benefits, and it's pitfalls. I believe every one of them has it's place, in the practice of writing.
I guess you could liken the creation of a new work, to creating a garden.
When seeds are sown, a trowel and watering can are needed to plant and water them in. When the weeds appear, a different tool is required. In the Winter pruning tools are used.
So it is with writing, each tool is useful in it's season. So now instead of worrying if I am doing it all the right way, I let the season dictate the tools I use. I must say though, there is nothing quite as satisfying as rolling up your sleeves, donning your gloves, and ploughing away long hand. It's seems to do something for my soul, that a computer cannot, and the fruit is usually much more flavoursome.
