There have been times when I fleetingly thought about using Voice Dictation Software... but I quickly chased those thoughts out of my mind. For me, using that method just doesn't fit into what I do, and how I express myself.
I just really feel it is part of my blogging, my writing and creating, to be able to see my own printed word on the screen, and have those words appear on the screen after leaving my poor tired brain, and actually, physically traveling down my arms to my fingers and then to the keyboard.
I know this may be seen as a silly comparison, and I am in no way comparing myself to an Impressionist painter, but can you really see Claude Monet "dictating" where the brush should go while he "painted" one of his many masterpieces?
Noper. Me neither.
Efficiency is just not something that I am interested in when I am writing. For me, it takes away, or lessens the "feel" of writing, which for me, in turn lessens creativity.
There is just something in the "feel" coupled with the "visual" of it all. I can easily see how the efficiency of using something like Voice Dictation Software might appeal to some... but it just doesn't do it for me.
I think it's just that different people have different personalities, and what seems right for one would not seem so for the other.
Everyone has their preferences. Some are slower, some more creative, some are more into the nuts-and-bolts, and some just want to get it on the screen and be done with it. Some are into multi-tasking, some concentrate on one thing at at time.
So... what works for you in blogging? Writing the old-fashioned way, or might being more efficient and using Voice Dictation Software be more important to you?
