The Cognitive Benefits of Handwriting
When I researched this blog post I discovered some claim writing longhand can do everything from staving off debilitating diseases to increasing the intellect. (See: How Handwriting Trains the Brain.) Make of that what you will.
I love pens and ink. Yes, I love technology too, but my primary writing tools will always be a notepad and a fountain pen.
For years, I feel odd about this... and guilty. Occasionally, I'd force myself to stop reaching for a pen.
I soon learned however, that I was more creative, and productive, when I made hand writing part of my workflow.
