Hand write 200!

Ok, its that time to stop what you are doing and write! (yes, again!!) This time, however, don't use your computer. Stop what you are doing and write by hand, two hundred words on an article or book on which you are working, or about an idea you have for one.

After you are done, consider if writing by hand is different for you, perhaps you access different material and energy, than when you write by computer.

  1. As a person who's written two BA theses and an almost finished 30,000 word MA thesis by hand, I can certainly recommend the process. One of the advantages is that you don't have a delete key when handwriting. Anything that's there is there and you might be even able to use it at some point.

    One caveat: I wouldn't advise this if you're not good at touch typing. For me, the process of typing out what I've written is also the first part in editing my text.
