I remember that one of the Christmas presents I was excited to receive was an IBM Selectric typewriter when I was a budding young writer. Before the IBM Selectric I wrote on an ancient, heavy, Underwood typewriter.

These days I write by hand or on on my Netbook.  I have a small notebook that I carry in my purse, so I can write whenever inspiration makes its demands.  How do YOU write?
