Pen or Keyboard?

I'm having a slightly stupid dilemma here now. I need to do some minor editing to the first chapter of Allumineria, few details I need in there and completely forgot as I went at it. Thing is, there are times I wish I was writing by hand, pen and paper method, as then I could write all night if I wanted to (now with my handy $2 book light LOL) and not keep the hubby up with the sound of my keyboard.
Now, the downside of this is of course, hand cramps, the slight carpel tunnel I've got going on, and of course having to eventually type it up post and all that especially...

So, I am curious. How many of you write specifically by hand and then transfer, compared to those who say screw it and take on the technology and specifically type your stories?

Still curious of your opinions, but am thinking I'm going to switch back to paper for first drafts and such anyway. Will make it a bit of a pain to show some online friends, but easier to write in the first place.

  1. I always write with pencil and paper first. I'm a bit older than you, so I didn't grow up with a computer and I feel a bit disconnected with my writing if I don't write at least the outline and the rough draft on paper.
    And what a good partner if you spare your husband by using pen and paper rather than clicking away on your computer.
