    Where to write novels?

    Discussion in 'Novels' started by Mahii, Sep 6, 2021.

    hello. I've been thinking about this for a long time. In your opinion, is it better to write a novel in the office or in software?
    Do you write novels from a computer or write it in the office?

    I think this depends a lot on personal preference and where you get things done. What is most important is not the software you use or the pen, but with which tools you get the most writing finished.

    So I would say, get started with what you are most comfortable with and see how it goes, if it's slow, then switch.

    I guess it depends on the writer and the circumstances. I like sitting outside under the lapa to write in my spare time, on my laptop, or if I have an idea I have my GDrive docs open and pinned on my browser on my work laptop, easily accessible for a quick jot.

    Anywhere you can write. You could do it in the park on your phone.

    Are you talking about the writing or the typing? I do most of my idea-generating, which is what I consider to be the actual writing, when I'm out and about in the greater world at large or while doing some mindless repetitive task like mowing the lawn or washing dishes.

    And then as soon as I can I get into the studio (what I guess your'e calling the office) and type the ideas up before I forget them. Then of course as I'm developing all that stuff I do some of the writing there in the studio, as well as the typing.

    I prefer to write and do major editing with pen and paper. Usually at my desk or in a comfortable chair.

    Everything gets entered into the computer (Word).

    I don’t understand the question.
