The Art of Longhand…


Since the new year i have decided to embark on a new task, Writing a novel longhand.

Apart from being at school, and with all of this new fandangaled technology, i have never needed to write anything remotely longhanded apart from the odd shopping list. However, i was suddenly struck by he urge to create something that wasnt on a computer. I must admit, at times it can get a bit slow going but on the whole i find that writing everything by hand gives my ideas a chance to develop properly and not get rushed. Characters are emerging as though they truely exist and i am just there to narrate their story. This, i am told, is how the greats get it done.

So, so far so good and im actually enjoying my writing again, if anything at all, that is a huge bonus.

Happy writing all!
