Rough Draft: Daily Post


When was the last time you wrote something substantive — a letter, a story, a journal entry, etc. — by hand? Could you ever imagine returning to a pre-keyboard era?

During the summer, I wrote several blog posts in my journal. I always write interview questions in a journal.

Some of the summer posts were written at an airport during a four-hour layover. Others were written at a park, while waiting for the kids day camp to end.

Personally, I like writing by hand. However, not everyone can read my writing so typing has an advantage of being neat and tidy.

It would be so much slower to write and publish a blog post without using a computer. So I hope that using the pen only doesn’t happen.

Although, I’m not opposed to using a typewriter.
