Why is it so much easier to write with pen on paper than it is to type on a keyboard? Don’t get me wrong, I love the internet and technology and all go the opportunities that come along with it. Hell, this entire publication wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for this. Yet, there’s still something so simple about pen to paper writing that just works.
I guess this hasn’t always been the case, in face, this is a relatively new phenomenon for me. I can kind of blame this on AP world history and the hours I spent handwriting essays, even if sometimes I completely BS’ed my way through them. Regardless, the biggest thing I pulled away from
all of that was to always keep going. Even if it seems like you’re writing nonsense, it’s always better just to get something down.
I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but I’ve been in a bit of a creative rut lately. No matter how long I spent in front of the computer screen, nothing seemed to strike me. So I simply stopped trying to type up everything. I took some time off to write.
And now, here I sit, transcribing all of my hand-written posts from my journal. I find myself writing ideas and drafts for posts at any possible chance; between classes, before work. .
Obviously, this has little to no relevance to the average person. Then again, I’ve never been average.
And thus, here we are.
