Word Processing

Question: What are some negative effects of the word processor when writing?

Answer: “Found that there was significantly less planning when the word processor was used alone.” C Haas. 1989. P. 433.

Comment: I never thought about it, but, considering my own writing with the word processor, one disadvantage is that I probably do not take the time to plan projects when using the word processor. I just start typing. However, when I’m not sure of what I’m doing, I use yellow, legal-sized paper and pencil—and I do mean pencil. Interesting insight. RayS.
