Writing by Hand

Heather Sellers requires her students to turn in handwritten first drafts, because she can tell the difference between handwritten works and typed compositions, even within the same story.

I have been reading a lot about this.

I read an article in the last month about how Nietzche’s work got terser as his blindness forced him to type instead of handwriting his works.

So the technology we use to write impacts how we write. Interesting. And true from my own experience.

Related to an earlier post on the topic of the impact.
