Over the years, I've gone from longhand drafting and editing on paper to drafting and revising on screen. Cutting and pasting is certainly easier on a computer, although it took me some adjustment to go from physically marking up a manuscript to editing wholly with a mouse and keyboard.
But the other day, I was working on chapter breaks and
calendar dates in a manuscript--trying to pin down when every scene must
take place, and identifying the arc and natural stopping point for each
chapter--and it drove me batty, trying to do this on screen. Finally I
printed out the whole manuscript, so that I could feel the heft of a
chapter, flip back and forth easily, spread many pages out at once, mark
and cross out things, more easily than I could on the computer. It
worked so much better for me, for this particular manuscript.
Sometimes the tool we pull out of our writing toolboxes is the old-fashioned one, the one we haven't picked up in a while.
