I have been writing more on my fancy new MacBook Air laptop, but something feels more authentic when I go back to my pen and journal. Perhaps it’s the physical act of forming the letters, and the letters into words, and the words into sentences, that make it all feel more real.
Can the reader tell the difference between something I composed with a pen, then transcribed, and something that sprang straight from the keyboard? I would, at first glance, think not.
But now the words come out and I feel like I can tell the difference. At least I feel closer to the thought.
