I perfer typing my writing. It gives me a little bit of pride ( don't ask me how) when I'm typing, plus it's just easier and I'm faster at typing than writing stuff phyicaly down.

I prefer typing because it's so much easier to edit and change and mess around with, but I do find if I'm stuck with something doing it by hand can help loosen up my mind. I think because it feels a bit less official.

I prefer to type. I can get my ideas down quickly, since I type much faster than I can write, and this way I don't forget what I'd like to add later on. Also, it's less of a hassle when I want to go back and edit something. And I hold pencils weirdly, so it hurts my hand to write longer things out on paper.

I prefer to write than to type. I type okay, but still i prefer to to write because i do that much faster and the ideas come real quick.

I like to hand write but I only do that when I don't have access to a computer, other wise I type.

I feel like I'd also find hand-writing would improve my writing because it's slower and you need to put more thought into it, but I've also definitely been on super-auto-pilot mode when hand-writing essays on exams, so I know I can rush it just as much as typing...

But overall typing is the way I go always. It's just easier, really. There's an infinite amount of paper to work with, my speed at typing is much better than my terrible terrible handwriting -- which is so inelligible that I can't even read it sometimes. It's easier to edit. Etc. etc.

I prefer handwriting to typing. My notepad is much more portable than my laptop and I can pull it out if I get any sudden ideas.
Though the main reason I like to handwrite is because it feels more relaxed to me. I'm far away from video games, the internet, and skype so I can focus a lot easier. I feel good being away from my computer, which has caused me lots of problems with school in the past. It used to consume large amounts of my time. Writing on paper feels authentic and innocent, a more pure way to get ideas down.
I have always loved to write and draw in notebooks, I take one almost everywhere. To me the pure feeling is worth the difficulty editing and the slower speed.

I like typing my final draft of something, but I can only type 'okay' too and if I'm thinkin somethin its much faster to scrawl it on paper.
