The following thesis deals with ways in which the rise of electronic devices and digital media have influenced the process of literary writing. First chapter contains a rough presentation of different digital literatures and questions relations between printed and digital forms of literary arts. The following chapters are based on a questionaire regarding writing process, that was answered by some of the Slovenian authors, mostly prosaists. Whilst reflecting the given answers, the thesis also, based on Barthes' work Variations sur l'écriture, questions the difference between handwriting and digital manuscript while following potential consequences that can be seen in the ontological status of writing and consequently literature. Barthes' work also serves as a starting point to reflect one's relation towards the typewriter (as one of the writing accessories) and the transition of ductus which moved from the author towards the machine and - last but not least - towards the body of the writer, due to the rise of digital era. Concluding chapters are dedicated to the extensive analysis of answers given by the participating authors and (based on writings by Strehovec and Juvan (whose writings are linked with the thoughts of Bakhtin and Kristeva)) to the processes in which, due to the advancement of digital media, the acts of writing and reading start to converge or even combine. The thesis concludes with a short analysis of different phenomenons regarding intertextuality in digital era.
