Technology and Writing

The first time I submitted a children’s book I had to ask my aunt to type the manuscipt for me. Thank heavens, I got a computer soon after that. I can’t even imagine writing a novel on a typewriter. I tweak my manuscripts constantly. I’m always playing with words and rearranging them. I would never be able to finish tweaking long enough to type the final draft. Now, everyone has the means to become a writer even if he or she  has to use a public access computer at the local library. Where will technology take us in the next 20 years? Maybe in the future we will only have to think and our words will appear on a computer screen! That’s scary. It would add a whole new aspect to “keeping your mind on your work.”
