What if you don’t have a word processor?

Was listening to the daily podcast (loving these for Nanowrimo btw!) and noticed that you referred to writing on your phone or tablet as a ‘kind of cheating’. Why is that? Is it because they are connected to the internet? I think you might be surprised how fast some people can type now on touch screen keyboards. When I was going to college, I used to write or rewrite sections of a manuscript while on the bus, and by the time I hit my stop forty minutes later, I sometimes had between 600 and 700 words–or more!–done by that time. Not too shabby I think for typing with thumbs.
Jen, the “cheating” was referring to the question of “how do you do nanowrimo without a word processor?” and my first question was “tablet or phone” – which technically use word processors.
These daily NaNoWriMo episodes are a real treat. They inspire me to stay on track with my word count. I appreciate that you speak in unambiguous terms about the practical work of writing.
