Paper vs Digital

21 Feb

Why Physical paper is better than the digital variations.

There are a few reasons I still prefer to use paper or a notebook to use a digital version (like a computer/laptop/internet based e-reader). E-readers are another reason but I finally gave in to getting myself a Kindle Fire a few years back so that if I couldn’t get out of bed if my back is giving me a problem I can just check my email and be entertained that way. Now I do have books on my Kindle, but I prefer to read print books. I’m sure I have a post on this or my Entertainment blog all the reasons why a print book is better. (2 reasons I love the feel of the paper even the smell.)

I still use a notebook/paper to write my drafts.

I have a small journal to write poems I get an idea for. Sometimes it comes out a full complete poem, and sometimes a verse or 2. So if I get stuck on finishing it, I just have to open the journal (which is right next to my bed) and write the idea in.

I have a couple stories I started which are in a binder, then an idea for one which is in a composition book with xerox copies of notes from library books of my research.

So what are my reasons to ‘shun’ the digital at least until you are ready to write up the short story or poem. (If it’s a novel you are writing I’d advise typing up 5-10 pages at a time.)

So this is my lists for the pros for paper and cons for  writing

Digital                                                      Paper

1-Turn on computer                                                                    Open Book

2- wait for it to boot                                                                     Turn to page

3- Open program (word, internet etc)                                 start writing (or reading even)

4- Open new file/type in site                                             Always Available (power or 0 Power)

5- start writing                                               even if something spills on it, you can still fix it (dry it out) paper & read/write

6- now power/wifi = no work done                          *No Glare

7- distracted by the internet

8- file corruption (see paper #5)

9- screen glare

 

so that’s 2  steps before you get to writing on paper, and 4 before you can write on digital.
