Today’s writers bleed a little less thanks to the computer’s xxxxxxx word processing capabilities. I’ve also found that if I write my first draft with a xxx pencil I bleed a little less. It’s xxxxx x xxx probably xxxxxx about as easy to scratch out a word, phrase, sentence, etc. with a computer as it is with a pencil and paper, but it seems easier to use the pencil. Cutting and pasting is more difficult with the pencil, but for me, that’s the second draft.
It often seems that finding the best word or a word close enough (the best word is usually found by rewriting and rewriting and, etc.) is too much of a time, energy, thought,and too many peanut butter or grilled cheese sandwich consuming process.
While it may not ‘take a village’ to find the best word, it often ‘takes a tree.’
Every writer has different ways to deal with finding the best word or words to say what is being said, what are some of yours?
