I am once again reminded of the importance of writing without the interference of a screen. Yesterday I wrote most of a post on paper, and put it into the computer thinking I could wrap it up there. After messing around with it for about 30 minutes, it kept getting worse. I finally shut the computer, opened a notebook, and a complete, fully-formed thought came out of the pen. With ease.

Some more references about the importance of writing by hand:

And check out the #studyblr and #studyaesthetic on tumblr. It’s what all the smart kids in college are doing these days, I guess.
