Live to Write - Write to Live

Friday Fun is a group post from the writers of the NHWN blog. Each week, we’ll pose and answer a different, writing-related question. We hope you’ll join in by providing your answer in the comments.

QUESTION: How do you write? Long hand? On a computer? Laptop? iPhone/Droid? Typewriter? Do you use a special program (ie Scrivner?) Word? Open office? Any special tips or tricks?
