I was involved in a writing for recovery program for a short time, but it lost funding. I really enjoyed the prompting and having 15 minutes to write something. Crazy, the school child in me would have hated that. Anyway, I've been thinking about starting something like that myself. I'm sure the laptop use is necessary, and I'm not trying to fix anything for you Lowdo. I just wanted to mention that I find writing with a pen and paper to be somewhat more useful. My hand can keep up with my thought process better, or my brain paces better as I write. On a computer, like right now I have about 10 things I want to say and share with you and I'm desperate to try and remember and type before I forget. Does that make sense? I believe I read somewhere that this is a real phenomenon. Of course, I do a lot of writing for work and the temptation to be on the computer is great because of the instant editing. Hey! I believe that's what I read before, we spend that time going back and making edits rather than just write and edit later. Thus, writing with pen and paper allows you to get things out easier. Sheesh. This post is somewhat proof of that. I feel like I'm rambling. Take care of yourself.
