Writing With Hand

Ever since I've finished my college education, I've missed writing. Writing with hand. Sometimes it seems ages that I'd written a page or two.

I'm very much fond of writing on paper. Most of my work is done by writing on the keyboard. And as a result, I miss the feel of using a pen and writing in cursive on a plain sheet of paper.

Recently I'd to write a lot while we were being imparted with in-house training in the company. I found that I've lost the speed and the ease with which I used to write. Even my hand started paining after writing a few lines. We had an exam after the completion of the training and I was the last one to finish. I scribbled until the examiner came to my desk. I'd many thoughts in my mind, but my hand could not cope up with the thoughts.

I used to write my thoughts on paper sometimes and then would again type it out and publish on the blog. But that practice gradually disappeared. Now, most of my blog posts (including this) are directly typed onto the keyboard.

I miss the days when in school and college we had to finish our homework by writing with pencil and then pen.

There are benefits of writing with pen and paper. It can act as a personal productivity tool. It helps in concentrating on your thoughts and there's no one between you and your thoughts. Also, writing with hand is better when your thoughts are flowing at high speed. At least, I can't cope up with the speed of the thoughts while I'm typing. At such times, writing with pen and paper is the optimal way.

So, I'll try to write at least a page a day using pen and paper.
