I find my creative thought process is much freer when using ink on a Tablet PC, as I’ve stated before. I am better able to capture the thought in ink and then transform it into text later. I ran across an interesting article on the collision detection blog that analyzes this process and has a go at the concept of what is better for the creative process, writing or typing? The writer is a journalist who uses the keyboard when interviewing subjects over the phone and a notepad and pen when the interviews are live. He admits to using ink for the outline even when he types the actual article, which is the process I use for my articles. It’s a good read and quotes lots of sources with opinions on this debate. It is of particular interest to Tablet PC users who may be torn between the slate or keyboard.
