A while ago my sister came into my room asking to borrow a pen. I replied that I don't have a pen. She then asked how come I don't have a pen, to which I replied, "It's 2020".
Then about a week ago my friends were signing a farewell card for a friend of ours who was leaving the office, each writing a short message in a card. I then realised I hadn't actually written anything by hand in a long time, and it was probably quite obvious just by looking at my handwriting 🤣
It's no secret that a lot of our "writing" nowadays is done digitally, with keyboards replacing pens, and typing becoming more common than actual writing. If I do write, which is quite rare, it's usually just scribbling notes or doing some quick calculations, or drafting out something which will eventually end up being typed out on my computer.
Sometimes I'm a little sad that writing is becoming more and more rare, and I worry that future generations will end up having absolutely atrocious handwriting as kids nowadays are much more adept at using smartphones and computers, only learning to write at a very young age before moving on to learning how to use computers. But with how much we rely on computers for pretty much everything, I don't see how things can change.
What about you? How much do you write on a daily basis? Do you write for work? A hobby? When was the last time you actually wrote something by hand?
