I started programming with just pen and paper, and remained this way for 2 whole years! ☺
I was in a boarding school without any access to internet or any PC/laptop save the computer lab which was only to be entered during the computer practical classes. It was a grind to write code on paper, dry run it, debug it and sometimes rewrite it nicely so its easy to punch it into the computer when I got the limited time in the practical classes! It made me write code cleanly, think it through before penning it down, and debug by just staring hard at it.
Its amazing how our mind can adapt to such difficult situations and makes it so it becomes a second nature to look and simulate code in our minds without bias, a trait I see rare among beginner programmers ☺16
