I jot down ideas in a notebook, but when it comes to typing them out, I use my laptop and Microsoft Word 2007. I sit down and start typing. I don't write every day (have four children, lots of animals, and work outside the home). It has taken me five years to write, revise, revise, revise, revise (did I mention revise?) one novel. That novel is nearly ready for submission and in my defense, I did Nano and get one other rough draft of a novel and two partial drafts done in three of those five years.
I have since gone back to flesh out a time line of my first novel and the other three as well in order to keep things straight. When I do get time to write, I sit on my bed with my laptop, notes, etc. spread out around me and type for as long as I can. I'm hoping my job outside the home won't last too much longer (that sounds awful, I know, but it wasn't supposed to take this long to begin with . . . though it is a GREAT job) and then I will have my days to write, and write, and write (all four kids will be in school this year
. . . I mean, I will miss them so much I won't be able to concentrate one little bit . . . yeah, that's what I meant) . . .
