Try your hand.

Don’t abandon handwriting. A physical touch brings something special to your words. It’s just different. The connection between your hand and the page via a tiny strand of ink imparts something that is somehow closer to your heart.

It might seem slow. Or weird. But those things might be what’s right about writing by hand.

Go buy a really, really good pen. Get some fine paper. Sit down and actually…write.

Try it.
