In the interview that I linked to in my last post, Rumer Godden said that she wrote by hand. She didn’t use a typewriter or word processor because every word should be chosen very carefully. This morning I read a post by the writer Anne Holloway about a session she lead with a group of young writers and would-be writers. She asked them to communicate one word at a time, in the manner of someone who has a disability and has to use means other than speech to get their message across to others. I’m sure that Rumer Godden would have approved.
