Although technology speeds up the writing process and makes communication more effective around the world, there's something to be said about writing longhand. Writing with pen and paper is a highly tactile and patient habit, whether it's a journal, notes, or even a letter sent to someone. If it does anything, it makes the body and the mind relax and resynchronize.

Take a look at the options. When we text or email, we can text or email in mere seconds, letters, and words. Our voices are broadcast in real time by phones. Those words cannot be remembered, whether sent or not.

In the meantime, writing longhand feels like taking a deep breath. Before the ink spills onto a white page, jumbled thoughts must be sorted. They must count and be deserving of the lines that will be used to fill it. It's an exercise in faith. It also needs patience, which is why.

Handwriting FAQ

Is one style of handwriting more effective than another? Q. Is one type of handwriting more efficient than another?

A. Both cursive and printed letters have a variety of benefits. Both improve fine motor skills, but cursive is the more effective of the two. Printing is more popular, however, but printing is more widely used. All books, journals, tables, forms, and websites use a print or block version of a letter. It's also easier to read, which is why it's used in so many ways. When using cursive, spacing occurs naturally between words. Sometimes words run together because each letter is separate in printing, but sometimes words run together.

Q. How can I improve my handwriting?

A. Exercise is the best way to improve your handwriting. Writing lists, letters, or a journal of poetry is a form of poetry. Write every day and you will see a change in your handwriting.
