When Cornelia begins a new story, she writes the first draft by hand. In A4 notebooks.
For her book "The Griffin’s Feather", for example, she had one book for notes, thoughts, and sketches before she started, and then another six for the handwritten first draft and the print out of the second draft. She more and more sketches characters and places while she is writing. It can be so inspiring for her (and makes much more beautiful notebooks ).
