I started writing something today, longhand. I’ve heard a lot about the creative reasons to write longhand, and I think it’s probably the only way to avoid my repeatedly wandering off into the Intarwebs and not-writing.
So I started and so far so good. I have this whole plan for writing on loose-leaf paper so I’m not committed to writing in a certain order (which has totally stressed me out because of my particular brand of creative psychosis) and storing it in a folio.
Here’s the thing I want to know next, though, for anyone else who’s doing long-hand writing. At what point do you transcribe it? Do you just transcribe it or do you fix it as you transcribe?
My greatest challenge (so far) as a writer has been my tendency to edit as I write. I’ve only recently figured out how to write without doing that (you’re welcome for all the rambling posts!). I’m not sure how well I’ll do not censoring myself as a transcriber. And some of me wants to track all my edits online so I can undo them at some point, if I go too far.
Do you just type them, or do you scan them with some sort of OCR function and then fix errors (like Evernote or something?)
