Do you still writing or you just type whatever you need to write now? I seldom write as most of the time, I am using my computer and just type whatever I need to. Oh, yes! I have a very neat and beautiful handwriting but I am lazy to write nowadays. I will just type even if it is just a few words or a simple note. My hand will start to feel aching whenever I try to write just a page and I get bored easily. So tell me, do you still take your time and writing your notes or you already forgotten how your handwriting looks like?

I am very glad that the computer was invented... and it is now available anywhere... because i have a very ugly handwriting... i think i am the only teacher in the school where i taught who has this liability... so i always tend to ask students to write on the board for me... so now... i rarely write using pen and paper... i just type away on my laptop... any letter that i need to accomplish...

Hello aseretdd, *Laughs* You are the first to admit that you have a very ugly handwriting. Is it really, really ugly or you think it is ugly? I was very proud of my handwriting as whoever sees it, will definitely praise how beautiful and neat my handwriting is *laughs* But, I don't feel proud of it anymore. My left hand gets tired easily whenever I hold a pen as it is very seldom for me to write nowadays. Whenever I need to write, I will start with passion and end up with the ugliest handwriting in the world...I think so *laughs*

hi gr8life! i don't have a nice handwriting though its readable and i write fast. i still write a lot, most of them letters to my friends from afar. i also write in my journal. i write a lot in the office because not everything is computerized here. also, when i attend trainings or seminars, i take notes in my notebook. i listen and write faster than listen and type in the computer. i've been used to writing a lot since i was probably in gradeschool. we did a lot of writing copying down lessons during my high school days and taking notes was a must during college.

Hi :) I think writing with hand is very useful and interesting,should not be forgotten. And sometimes, handwriting is more convenient and also good for your brain. It can be a certain practise or exercise for your brain.

Hello Izjilbb, I think my handwriting is very good and neat but since I get used with computer, I feel so lazy to write - even a single sentence. My left hand gets tired easily whenever I try to type just for the whole A4 size paper. My handwriting will change gradually towards the end of my writing due to tiredness...

I prefer to write....I don't do alot of it but when I do, I would rather hand write it opposed to typing it and printing it.... When I was in college I hand wrote all my notes....I found that I remembered things better that way....

Hello Feona1962, I seldom need to write, most of the time I will type. I am too lazy to write as my hands get tired easily holding the pen. I even type my grocery list *smiles* That shows how lazy I am...

I do type most of the time, it's so much faster and easier just to pull up a word processing program and print it out when your done. But sometimes typing just won't do and a personally hand written letter is in order. I used to have beautiful handwriting, very easy to read and not too flowery looking. Nowadays my handwriting looks truely awful and yes I get aches in my hand too. I think the problem is we get used to using different muscles in the hand when we type than when we write. Since I don't write very often it doesn't really bother me but I find that my printing looks much better than my cursive writing lately, so I tend to print everything. I do miss my pretty handwriting though.

Hello craftcatcher, I seldom need to write too and if I could, I will try to avoid writing *smiles* I have a beautiful handwriting that becomes the envy of others *laughs* but I don't proud of it anymore since the invention of computer. I can type much faster too and that's another reason I prefer to type. If I could, I wish to type everything that I need to instead of writing!

Hello iyah10, I am lazy nowadays. Typing is faster for me. I hate writing now and when I really have no mood, my handwriting will turn from bad to worse *smiles*

I still write a lot. I hand-write my grocery list, other shopping lists, to-do lists, some letters, cards. But I remember back in elementary school and most of middle school hand-writing all my school reports and the crazy cramps I used to get in my hands. Ugh, that was horrible. Once I went into high school and college I would type all of the reports and papers. So much quicker, easier, and less painful than having to write it all!!

Hello dandj929, I am glad that you still do. I don't write that often now. If only I can type everything, that will be good for me *laughs* I am pretty lazy nowadays - always try to find a short cut for everything!

I still do some writing my hand but I've noticed that, as I've gotten older, my handwriting isn't as good as it once was. I can also type much faster than I can write so I prefer to use the keyboard for anything that I can. I hand write my grocery lists and a few letters that I still send out by regular mail but, other than that, I type.

Hello spalladino, I realized that too. My handwriting doesn't look good like 10 years ago while I was still studying. I remember when I was just started working. My boss found out that my handwriting is very neat and she asked me to take the minute of the weekly meeting. That time I felt proud but not now anymore *laughs*

Well, if it is something personal, like a thank you or a letter to a friend I will hand write it. I think that is more personal. Also, when I am in a hurry I will write rather than type because one I don't type so fast. For example, I keep a phone log in my office and note the information I am being given during the calls by hand. If I tried to type these I would miss half the information.

Hello redkathy, I am just a lazy person. I hate writing now and I don't know why. Last time I was so happy whenever people praised my handwriting. But now, I just don't care anymore. I prefer to type and sometimes when I have a lot of time to waste *laughs* I can even type my monthly expenses and grocery list. If only I can type for the 'Post-It' note ......
