Well if you ask me, I prefer writing it in the computer because I can easily go back space when I make a mistake unlike writing it in a piece of paper. But it's also nice to type it first in a piece of paper because ideas will flow more with having pen and paper with you. How about you, what do you prefer, writing in a piece of paper or typing in a computer? and why?

I actually love doing both, however, because I have cubital tunnel syndrome in my dominant hand, writing for long periods of time isn't an option. I would rather type on the computer than cause more harm to my hand. In my opinion though, letter writing is becoming a lost art.

I prefer typing a document on a wordprocessor instead of writing on a piece of paper. I am afraid that I have to strive hard to write neatly.

I prefer to do typing for my assignment and some daily record. But i will use pen and paper to do my notes. I like to see my notes colorful and i enjoy reading my own handwriting.

Same here, I prefer writing in the computer than in any piece of paper, I don't know but it seems I can concentrate more and freely write all the things I wanted when I'm writing in the computer. Weird huh?! Also, it was quite more convenient and clean, quite more efficient if you ask me, writing here in the computer. I guess, I'm truly dependent on my computer, nowadays, I can think more whenever I work in the computer than writing a draft in a paper.

I prefer writing in the computer because if an idea comes to your mind you can easily type in the computer and erase it if you created a mistake while writing in a piece of paper when you have an idea when you erase some mistake you created it becomes so untidy to look at.

Much easier here to type on th computer,its just so simple lol we can oen up a new word document and away we go,whereas if we use a piece of paper to draught it out then we need in the end to put it onto word to be spellchecked and grammatically corrected,so if the choice was the pen or the computer tehn the pc would win hamds down every time for me.

Writing stuff in your computer has been one of the easiest things to do lately. It's like your flow of thoughts comes in fluidly. I try to write in pen and paper lately because I have noticed that my handwriting is not the readable, and I know this is due to the fact that I have been used to typing stuff. Either way, I would do if some creative thoughts come bugging me. :)

I prefer to write in a piece of paper because for starting a topic, I need to gather information about it by creating facts and later, opinions that I jot down in a scratch. To save an ink of the pen, I could use a pencil so I could erased what I must've written as a typo.

Hi cautionhot01. For me personally I do not really mind either way cos I can always use the Eraser/Twink to erase the mistake but there is always the good behind the keyboard like as you said the computer you can just backspace it. There is still a method of fixing your mistake either way. Catch ya later pretty_babe

I love being able to type on a keyboard and see my words appear on the screen. Then I can file them in my computer. I don't need to print out on paper, because I will be submitting what I have written online. Using a keyboard I can rewrite as much as I want, I can correct any errors, add more words, remove or replace some of the lines I've written. I can move paragraphs around and I can paste in quotations or weblinks. On paper I just end up with a scrawl of handwriting with inserts, crossings out, corrections and misspelling.

I like to write on a comnputer. For k,e it seems easy to browse something that I do not know ranging from spell check. These days typing on computer is easy for me compared to writing. Of it was writing on a paper I would not store it anywhere. I would only loose all my written work with time. In computer, I am able to save my good piece of work and show it to the world.

Yup, it's easier and faster for me to type, than to write. Moreover, my writing has already become such that I can't even decipher it myself. Sometimes when I am waiting at the doctor, or airport; I would write down my thoughts or ideas in a notepad; when I try to type them into the computer, I can't make out what I had written!

I do both. It just depends what I'm working on. If I'm doodling around with ideas, and making notes, I'll usually write in a notebook. When I'm actually composing an article, it's the computer. Sometimes I can think better when I'm away from the computer.

I, personally love being able to type with a computer. I can type faster than I write, and I don't get that annoying pain in my hand from writing on paper alot.
