I don’t have the discipline for that. All my first drafts are written on a paper notebook or on my phone. I find it way too easy to multitask and lose focus when I’m on my laptop. Either that or I edit as I write, which sometimes is even worse than checking Facebook or playing games.

I do use my laptop a lot for editing and proofreading, though. Research, too. Although that’s often a code word for procrastination…

I write short stories. I also write about writing. If I'm procrastinating on both, I write about why I haven't been writing. E-mail: danbelmontwriter@gmail.com
