I agree with this for myself. I write for a living. I *always* put pen to paper first. There is something, probably tactile, that helps me get the words flowing. I've had writer's block before and turned to a computer to try to get past it, but 99% of the time, I am more successful when I have a pen that feels good in my hand and paper that is pleasant to write on. In fact, between dh and me, we have quite the collection of pens, pencils, and assorted papers from around the world. I enjoy writing. I feel a little sad that the pleasure I get from the art of writing may not be know by generations to come. For those who have difficulty writing for whatever reason, I'm glad that there is an alternative, but I wouldn't want everyone to give it up for computer printouts.
