In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Handwritten.”
Sometimes writing on the computer is not a good idea. I for example can’t concentrate on writing fan fiction if it’s not written on a paper. Ideas come better if it’s handwritten first. I written a few fics on the computer but I still prefer handwriting. Mine is not that pretty. I always thought other people have better handwriting than me.
I have a lot of handwritten papers and there will be more. I re-use papers so I think about the environment at the same time. I have at least 3 fan fiction I’m writing right now. Sometime I write for hours. When ideas come, there’s no stopping. If I didn’t write them on a paper first, good ideas would disappear before I could even get the computer on. Times when I don’t handwrite, is this blog.
I think it’s sad cursive handwriting is not taught in school anymore. I hardly use it anymore though even if I still know how to. I write faster with block letters. Handwriting in general is a lost art. It’s only because of modern technology. Soon kids don’t even know what a pen and paper is. They won’t experience the feeling seeing your own handy work. Holding a pencil in your hand and a paper in front of you. That’s something you won’t get from typing on a device. Even if writing on them brings another feeling. But nothing beats the feeling of seeing your own handwriting. No matter what it looks like.
I will always use handwriting. That’s an everyday thing for me. Writing on the computer is fun once in a while but even that gets boring sometimes. Handwriting is golden and it will stay with me as long as I live.
