just curious, when you begin your novel, do you write it or type it.

A little of both, but mostly type these days.

As my computer died yesterday and I am now limmited to either public ones or other people's I'd say write now...

Did used to write long hand then type it up on an electric typewriter, then old computer running windows 3.11. On my third machine now running windows XP.....

I don't have the time to write longhand. I type 80+ wpm, but my handwriting is fairly illegible...

I type fast too, so I wind up typing.

Type. I type a lot faster than I do write. But I do write down any ideas or names that come to me so I won't forget them.

I actually have physical problems holding a writing implement too long -- my hand cramps, badly -- so I always type everything I can. Plus, it's just a heck of a lot fast for me and easier to edit. My handwriting looks like drunken chicken scrabble anyway, or so I'm told :)

I hate writing things out by hand--I can never go fast enough, and my hand cramps up or my pen runs out or both. Plus, what if you want to change things? The paper becomes an undeciferable mess of scribbles.
