“When was the last time you wrote something substantive — a letter, a story, a journal entry, etc. — by hand? Could you ever imagine returning to a pre-keyboard era?” –The Daily Post
As a current college student, I have had classes that required me to write essays by hand for random assignments and midterm exams. However, I do agree that handwriting is somewhat of a lost art and I would very much like to try writing a future blog post by hand before proceeding to type it up.
This is a rather depressing connection but I follow one blog whose owner is currently in jail (for legal issues regarding the house she was living in) and now she handwrites her blog posts and mails them home and her husband photographs them and uploads them to her blog. If that’s not dedication, I don’t know what is.
When was the last time u typed on a keyboard and not a touch screen?! Life and its little pleasures! The sublte scratch when pen glides on paper, or the clunk of your finger hitting a letter key!
