Last night I started typing up my short stories so I could get in the habit of typing again in preparation for NANOWRIMO. I haven’t typed anything since last April, and I think I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t miss it.
It might just have to do with my word processing program (I’m currently using Microsoft Word). My fingers slip and I accidentally use the keyboard commands to underline, or highlight all the text. Earlier this morning I accidentally closed the program without saving my progress so I had to type it all again. (I was not too happy about that by the way).
I’m hoping that I don’t run into these problems come November, but I have a feeling that I will. However, I don’t really want to hand write 50,000 words either.
What writing program are you using and do you like it? Have you run into similar problems as I have? I’ve heard good things about Scrivner, but I don’t want to invest in it just yet because I’m hoping to buy a new laptop next year.Or maybe I’ll just buy a typewriter and not have to worry about any of these problems. What would you recommend?
