pencil & paper
I'm a high-tech kind of gal. I've got Apple products, I'm a multi-platform/console gamer, I'm into photo editing. It's safe to say I'm pretty into gadgetry.
But there are some things that I still do the old school way.
Outlining is one of them. Whenever I get caught up in a new story idea, I whip out a plan old composition notebook and start scribbling. And when it comes time to plan out scenes, I get out the trusty index cards and a pencil. Not even a mechanical pencil, you guys. One of those you have to sharpen. (The pencil pictured here was sent to me by a NaNoWriMo pal last year!)
But I love the scritch-scratch feel of it across the paper or using the eraser to change around the chapter headings.
Are there any old school methods you still use in your writing process?
