Pen and paper are the best writing tools

The beginning is always the hardest. This idiom often occurred when you want to start writing. If you want to be perfect for the beginning, you will put off the final writing into infinity. Once you started to write the first word, you will pour the ideas as many as you have.

I tried much software for writing and abandoned many of them. Typing and revising in computer are easy, but computer has many distractions to attract our attentions. The word processor has many powerful features to help us in obtaining the beautiful format, but the format is not the core of writing. Write out what you want is the essential purpose in writing.

When we were reading, the text was constructed logically for easy to understand. But when you are writing, advancing your text are always illogical. Your brain is powerful and fast, but it figured as a naughty child who always running indirectly. You should concentrate the mind without any bothering noises. The errors, the ugly handwriting and the rough sentences can be fine. You can fix them soon. Writing continually is the first in this period, thus the writing tools should be simple and has no extra features that may block the flow off. That’s why the plain text editor is good enough and many famous authors (like George RR Martin) prefer to write on the DOS, or some command line tools.

Writing through pen and paper seems to be outdate and uneconomic at the present time. But the pen and paper still have the profit in writing, they are the simplest tools in the world, they don’t need to charge and worked reliable, they never gave you annoyed notifications, they are so cheap and easy to get. If you write an incorrect sentence, they wouldn’t tell you and blocked your thinking off. If you want to draw some pictures to improve your thinking, the pen and paper is simpler than all software. You don’t need to concern with the rough and unfinished drafts, if you satisfy it, publish it; otherwise, you can burn, break, destroy or drop as your pleasure.

Being patient for the drafts, the completion is better than perfection. It’s difficult to start writing, using the pen for free writing in the paper can produce the draft quickly. No drafts, no final works, we should work as a painter, producing the enough drafts, the best work will have been appeared automatically.

第一段的occur和start 为什么用过去式?

perfect+on不对

idea是可数名词,as much as 不对

“you will put off the final writing into infinity” 这句不是人话

occur和start
occured 表示发生过的,不用过去式用啥?
started 和 once 搭配。
perfect 应该加 for,这个你是对的。
idea是as many as 这个你也是对的。
you will put off the final writing into infinity
这句我推敲了很久,你认为更好的表达是?

事实上我就是这么干的,我查的字典也非常多。

为啥出错率还这么高呢,可能你需要增加阅读量。

这个真没太好的办法,我自己检查了无数遍,但完全找出每一个错误真的很难。

楼主写的跟坨屎一样

“The beginning is always the hardest.” This proverb always pops up in a writer’s mind whenever he writes. If he wants a “perfect” beginning to lead his writing, he will very likely never fishish it, because when he has jotted down the first lines of words, his train of thought seems to be chugging on and on and on … with no end in sight.

“The beginning is always the hardest.” A speech bubble encircling this proverbial cliche will pop up over a writer’s head whenever he writes. Then slowly but surely the bubble inflates, until it becomes an overwhelming burden on your poor writer.

“The beginning is always the hardest.” A speech bubble encircling this proverbial cliche suddenly popped up over Nathan’s head when he was working on his new novel. He sat hunched over the desk, the silhouette of his right hand and the nib darkening a patch on the paper, like a shady oasis in a desert of light. Slowly but steadily that bubble inflated until it became an overwhelming burden on this nocturnal writer, who, as much in his thirties, had published three novels and dozens of short stories on mainstream newspapers.

The grandfather clock in the parlour had struck midnight when Nathen sighed and tossed his pen on the paper, hence dispersing the temporary oasis into the eternal desert. All the night he wanted an immaculate, delectable beginning to grab the eyeballs of the reader, and those critics, come to think of it, but the more he embellished his first paragraphs, the more he realized he might never finish it, because a train of thought, so to speak, was chugging on and on and on … in his mind with no end in sight.

感谢回复。
你这段有两个词我可以采纳,1. proverb 2. jot down。
找别人的错误总是容易的。
风格各有不同,我说下你第一段的问题:
“The beginning is always the hardest.” This proverb always pops up in a writer’s mind whenever he writes. If he wants a “perfect” beginning to lead his writing, he will very likely never fishish it, because when he has jotted down the first lines of words, his train of thought seems to be chugging on and on and on … with no end in sight.
pop up 用在这里不太合适,它表示 appear very quickly,万事开头难不是一瞬而过的。
he will very likely never fishish it 直接用 he will never fishish 不更好吗?
first lines of words 这个还是用 frist word 比较好,表示只要你开了头,哪怕再小也行。并不需要写一行,当然这不是问题。
chugging 这个比喻不是太恰当,可能你对写作这个事情有其他的看法。
