Re: "You should write on paper" advice

I recently returned to writing by hand for first draft, and new/replacement scenes while editing; mostly as an experiment. I've found it liberating and fun. I also found I write more words and more descriptively. I think I stay "in the zone" more readily. For me, the main benefit of handw...
