I mostly just take notes and doodle in meetings now… but I honestly REALLY miss writing and I feel like grammar and writing style has gone completely downhill. I have a hard time writing concisely and coherently… and for that reason I am planning to take some writing classes as a refresher :)

I to have some problem with handwriting, about 4 years ago I still wrote with hand and now it’s very hard to write.

I don’t think that handwriting will become a dead “language”, but rather a less used way to communicate.

I guess I havn’t noticed much decrease in writing things the old style, as I hardly ever learned to do that outside of school. The amount of dead trees I tossed in the bin today when cleaning my coursework from the past year out of my room was big enough to make me regain faith in ‘writing digitally’.

As practise decreases, I guess the time taken to write a proper letter by hand increases – handwriting is something that needs constant maintainance, or it’ll get sloppy. Nothing like knowing how to ride a bicycle, in short.

For quick notes, I like typing much better – complicated Maths, however, is without doubt much more efficient on grid paper and with a refill pencil rather than on a computer. As of yet, rough sketching hasn’t been beaten by the computer.

EDIT : Oh and regarding sloppy grammer.. Even though we should be capable to write properly on the computer just as well as we did by hand, I believe that since it takes less time and the words written are less ‘permanent’, people just got careless. This needs to change back, correct grammar needs to live on, if only for the sake of style.

I pretty much don’t write anything in the summer. Other than my signature when buying something, of course. In school, I write short hand, so it always looks like crap lol.
