So I wrote my second novel longhand last summer. About 550 notebook pages. It was a great experience, loved writing longhand, etc, etc, but typing it up has been a b! I can't scan it because I wrote in cursive and I don't think a computer will come along in the next 100 years that can decipher it. Also couldn't pay someone else to do it for the same reasons. I went about the arduous process of typing it up, but I'd be doing it just about at the same pace it took me to write it. Recently, I got Mac-Dictate (voice-recognition software) and a headset. That has been working so-so, but about 10% of the words come out wrong. This may not seem like much but it is when I have to go back and look for every mistake, then look to my notebook to see what the correct word is (because it's not like a regular typo--it's an actual word that the computer thought I said, usually totally different). I like writing longhand, but typing it up is a real pain. Does anyone have any suggestions? Or just share your own experiences?
