I like writing fiction longhand because it slows me down and forces me to commit to sentences before I write them down.
To compose them, as it were, rather than merely write them.
I use pencil rather than pen because I can erase. Lol. I’m not a total masochist.
I don’t write anything other than fiction with pencils.
It’s an odd quirk.
I do know a published mystery/humor/paranormal author who claims to draft everything in her bathtub! With a pen and notebook.
I think she’s telling the truth.
I love it.
