I have remembered the main thing that really put me off writing NaNoWriMo by hand the next time: _the word count_. It was absolute hell. Counting potentially fifty thousand words by the "one, two, three, four... thirty-one, thirty-two, wait, did I miss a line? dammit now I have to start again" method - even with pencil ticks on the page - is awful. It was bad enough for essays at school which were only a couple of thousand words at most.

But I suspect I may well still use paper and index cards, if only because it takes me away from everything that I do for the rest of the day.

(N.B. one does run out of index cards sometimes. And they are bulkier than you imagine.)
