Writing matters. No matter how old you are, writing is a skill that matters. It’s also a skill that seems to be less and less used on a daily basis by more and more people. Technology advances and thus, things are becoming more digital. And sadly, less analogue. Now don’t get me wrong, I do love technology and the digital age. However, writing is incredibly important. I wanted to send a moment today to share a bit about that.
I feel like as technology advances, we stop using analogue ways. So many people have never sent a letter in their lives. Work colleagues scramble to find scrap paper to write on, as everything is done by email. I feel like more university students are bringing laptops or iPads into classes – over pens and paper. A lot of students revise with typed notes. I’m not saying you should handwrite everything, no. Typing notes is definitely a lot faster in class. However, I think people should incorporate more writing into their daily habits.
