As we live in a computer dominated generation, do you still write in pen a lot? For me, I haven't beening actually writing for long time. I work every day on computors and all documents are printed out instead of writen in pen or pencil. Sometimes when I really want to write down something, i find it difficult because I make a lot of spelling mistakes. So what about you. Do you write now?

Yes I do love writing with pens and still use them almost everyday. I use pens more than pencils. If you keep writing often you can avoid making spelling mistakes.

Yes, right now I right in pen. This is because I have journals. I don't spend all the time on this logical internet piece of whatever it is. It sucks everything. But whatever. It is totally useful like possibilities of sugar pie and red orange and gold on hot summer's morn, don't you think so? or is it mourn. I don't know. I don't make spelling mistakes because I am used to writing in pen. That's cool huh? So much for spell check. Lol.

For my job, I am mostly at the computer, but I also need to take notes for meetings and that is usually done on pen and paper. I need to write fast, so I've devised a shorthand scheme. I love writing, and I love my handwriting on cards and letters. I still write letters to one friend overseas and although it's so much faster to send emails, we like the written form, and have continued sending each other letters. I also scrapbook, which involves journalling on the page with artwork and photos. The journalling is an important part to me because it records what happens when I would have forgotten the precious moments otherwise. So I find that scrapbooking helps me keep in touch with the written form! In short, most hours a day I am typing on the computer, but I still write as much as I can cos I love writing.

I actually love writing with a pen. I wrote with a pencil in high school, but once I got to college, I was all about the ball point pens. Although I do write on my computer a lot, I still enjoy good old fashioned pen and paper.

Hi alex. I have the same problwm with you. I use the computer a lot so when i really need to write it down i find i always forget the spelling. But i really don't know what to do when all the documents need to be printed and no paper work by hand. I only write in my diary book and shopping list. Have a nice one.^_^

I write a lot in pen. I like to write stories, and often I will write them in pen rather than type. I find that my ideas flow better and I get less distracted when I hand write over typing on the computer. I also have a couple of penpals that I write handwritten letters too.
