Some authors feel that the pc kills creativity. They much prefer to curl up in a warm corner with a pillow and an apple and wield magic with their trusty pen. My warm corner is usually filled with ants that bite or ticks that sneak up on me only to inject their poison in the dead of night.
Years ago I wrote longhand on a large A4 writing pad. The finished ms was almost impossible for any but me to decipher. Then I discovered that computers had a delete button and that you could move anything from one letter to a whole paragraph or more from one place to another. This would be like heaven! Yay for technology!
Here is a litle ditty I wrote in those days just for fun. It is not quite true for me as my imagination often goes into overdrive while at the PC, especially now that I can type faster than I can write.
Computer vs. Pen

Computer hums, keyboard clicks,
Mouse darts busily to and fro
Deleting blocs of prose
Or moving single words into position.
Sunny corner, paper flips.
Birds dart busily building nests
Lines write themselves, ideas flow
Teeming, jostling, pushing in delighted haste
Through my pen to paper.
Wish my pen
Had a button called Delete.
