The lost art of handwriting
Posted January 15, 2013on:
Handwritten anything these days seems to me to be a lost artform. The reason I say this is because since my laptop started screwing up I have had to revert to writing my novel in, well, writing… Yeas good old pen and paper. No more of this modern computer technology type stuff… Pen and paper…
As I said to my sister in law today “its all good and well to be all nostalgic and stuff… But there comes a point when something has to give.”
I am perfectly fine with writing with pen and paper, but I did find myself becoming impatient with the lack of… Auto-matic-ness of ink being rolled onto a page by a little metal ball.
I did manage to write out the rest of chapter 3, chapter 4 and now I am starting chapter 5.
My laptop stopped charging and as soon as I received a charger that worked my laptop stayed on for 5 minutes before it crashed 4 times in a row and I got so frustrated that I gave up. Now I still have my phone but I would like to point out, that I personally can write more and use proper grammar if I write down on paper, better than I can if I am typing on my phone or computer.
Why? Well because when you write with pen and paper it eliminates the need to be fast, you can actually sit back and concentrate on your writing.
So with that said I think it is time to make another coffee and get cracking on chapter 5.
Must love short posts that I just think of :p
