Do you write using the inbuilt writing tool to type down the article or type down in a word document and then copy and paste it in the space allocated in the writing tool? The world is now moving at a faster pace. Internet has changed information technology into an effective media of communication. Writing is an area that has underwent a major change due to the usage of internet across the world. Whatever we write, even if it is nonsense it can reach a wider audience in a matter of seconds. Instead of a local audience, Internet has paved the way to international audience.
I started to scribble my thoughts as poems or articles in pieces of paper from old note books. Writing down on papers was quite easy as I was writing in note books from my lower classes. During my college days there was no Internet facility. Computers were also not used in a wider scale. I used to sit long hours in the library and write down notes for the prescribed poetry and drama lessons. I started to work in the computer from the year 1993. As a first step, I started to type down all the poems written in the note books into word documents in a computer that used word star. Even then, I would write the poems in a paper and later on type down and save it in the computer. Typing down directly in the computer was difficult. There was a mind block and I could not write down fluently my thoughts as I used to do with a pen and a paper. I felt as if the poetic muse refused to cooperate with me and make me write down whatever I wanted to write.
In the year 2003, when I joined the online tutoring company as a trainee for essay markup, the change set in. Few books were there in the shelves for reference, and we were forced to read all the resources using the net. Practice essay markups were also done in word documents. We were restricted to take prints of whatever we need to read. Unlearning what was learned all through the years and learning a new method to update knowledge with additional resources was a hard task. The office used minimum paper and so everyone was forced to read and write online. Slowly, every one got into the habit of reading and writing online. The brain got adjusted to the method of writing online in word documents. The introduction of writing tool changed every thing. Writing using a web tool demanded much more concentration and required a polished writing skill.
I find it convenient and easy to type down the article using the writing tool. Though the writing tool has minimum menu, still I find it easy to write.
