Desktop? Laptop? Pen and pad? Journal? Napkins? Random bits of paper?

I keep notebooks everywhere... the car, next to my bed, the living room... but I usually use my laptop.

I have to write it all out on paper and then type it out on the computer. It's the twice over that I catch things or add things. Plus, this way I can write anytime even if my computer has been taken over by children. It takes twice as long to do it that way though lol. Whatever I write next, I may just try to do it on the computer to start. I really need to get a laptop.

Thank you tasha_mae for the awesome siggy!

Notebooks and my desktop.

Thank you to the wonderful ladies who mad the blinkies!

"The Lord compensates the faithful for every loss. That which is taken away from those who love the Lord will be added unto them in His own way. While it may not come at the time we desire, the faithful will know that every tear today will eventually be returned a hundredfold with tears of rejoicing and gratitude..... These experiences, while often difficult to bear at the time, are percisely the kinds of experiences that stretch our understanding, build our character and increase our compassion for others."

My laptop and a three ring binder. I have to be able to have all my "work sheets" where I can flip through and look at 'em. Character development, maps, pictures... stuff like that.

I try really hard at not editing too much while I work so when I do have to type hand written work I try not to change it too much otherwise I can keep rewording and altering and never make any progress. That being said, I do edit sometimes when I print out my work cause I'll reread it.

up until now, I've only used a pen and paper, but I think I may start using my laptop or dekstop and see how I like that.

I jot things down in notepads all over the place! I haven't started anything "serious" for a while, if I did I would prob go and buy a nice new notepad and use that
