So apparently, January 23rd is National Handwriting Day. According to, “National Handwriting Day is an opportunity to reintroduce yourself to a pen or pencil and a piece of paper. In this day of computers, more and more information, notes, and letters are sent back and forth via a keyboard and cyberspace.”

As writers, this is a day we can all celebrate. Even though we may not necessarily write much by hand anymore, we probably have a deep appreciation for paper and pencil.

Personally, I do almost all of my writing on the computer. However, when I write poetry, I always write it by hand first.

What about you?Do you still pull out the notebook and pen or pencil when you sit down to write or are you strictly an electronic writer?
