I have a confession to make. In the 21st century digital age, I write longhand.
I don’t necessarily want to write longhand, but I don’t have much choice. When I type, my brain just doesn’t generate engaging text, interesting sentence structure or creative word choice. It’s just bland, boring and blah. However, when I take pencil to paper, I feel a sense of ease and comfort. Longhand gives my brain space to create with no restrictions.
If I try to create a piece of writing on the computer, my thoughts are somehow stilted. Something in me clenches and halts the flow of ideas, almost as if that blinking cursor is waiting for me…hurry up, let’s go, tick tock, time’s a’wasting.
