When it comes to expressing myself, I see the computer as a means of dulling my work down for presentation; it's the edit rather than create phase. I would rather photocopy/scan my work, but I'm aware that my hand-writing would make lots of people complain. This does depend on what I'm working on, admittedly - I mean, for things like script writing, I would normally work directly into the computer, but even then, generally, the creative work has already been done, and I see script-writing as documentation of it!

These are some of the many things digital can't do (or can do, but would be missing the point):
Write in spirals.
Write upside down.
Write in watercolour
Paint in thick black acrilic on acetate then scratch text out of it again.
Write on a big A2 piece of brown paper with felt tip.
Write whilst forgetting about spelling or punctutation.
Write across multiple pieces of paper at once.
Mind-map (ok it can do this, but very badly, no matter how advanced the software).
Saturate the page so there's no white space left.
Making poetry by cutting out text from newspapers and blu-tacking them to the wall.
Random placement of words.
Chalk poetry in public (that will disappear with the rain).
