I was watching an interview on YouTube with novelist Paul Auster today. He said he writes longhand when in the early phase of a book then completes the manuscript using a typewriter. I thought this was quite rare and interesting.

I personally compose poetry and prose in my journal using longhand, then I take it to the computer to finish it up.

I’ve always wondered what it would be like to compose on a typewriter. I have a feeling my writing would be considerably less filtered.
