This is an enigmatic trait of mine, and while to me it seems pretentious and silly, I've decided to share it with the forum to see if anyone else has experienced this. Basically, I've been writing consistently for a couple years now, and I typically use Google Docs to save my work. It allows me to access my work anywhere, and share it with anyone whose opinion I value. It's fantastic in that sense. The only problem is that it sometimes makes me feel very distant from my writing and very disconnected from the story, sometimes even unexcited about it. I experience this with Microsoft Word and other word processing programs, too. It's as if the computer sporadically siphons away the fun of writing. When I download a pdf of the piece and print it out, however, writing suddenly seems real and exciting again. Something about holding a solid sheet of paper with the words crisply printed onto the page makes writing much more exciting and tangible for me. I'll edit the printed work like a madman, and it makes me feel very inspired, enough so to where, after hours of editing the printed piece, I can jump back into Google Docs and work on some other pieces with good productivity. It's a bizarre phenomenon, really, and I've even gone so far as to shopping for a typewriter on which to do my writing, even though I know it's archaic and inferior to the computer in terms of productivity. Does anyone else experience this, or am I just being a snob?
