I like writing on my laptop because I can type quickly. I like writing with a pencil because it is more relaxing and pleasant to edit: The words just flow and there is no bright light.

Are there options that combine the advantages of both?

    I've put this on hold because questions that solicit list-style answers (as we're seeing here already) aren't a good fit for SE. Please edit to describe what features are important to you and then we can reopen -- describe the problem you're trying to solve rather than just taking a survey, and I'm confident the folks here can help you. Thanks! – Monica Cellio May 26 '16 at 20:43

While die-hard wordsmiths might cringe, dictation is a great way to get your words on paper!

  • There's probably a market for a DYAC story, but I don't think you could do a novel that way. Kind of Pynchon meets Dali by way of HAL. – Lauren-Clear-Monica-Ipsum May 26 '16 at 18:57

You could always also use a typewriter if you find one somewhere

I like writing with a really great pen. If the instrument feels good in my fingers and makes nice marks on the paper, then I'll enjoy the whole process more.
