Pencils, Pens and Writing from the Heart: The Beauty of Low-tech Blogging | Cat’s Eye Writer Blog | Judy Dunn | Blogger | Writer

Don’t forget old-school, pen-and-paper writing. Research shows writing by hand helps stimulate the brain. Judy Dunn shares simple, fun ideas on how writing by hand can make you “a more creative, interesting blogger.”

The research shows, and I have discovered it myself, that writing by hand engages the brain. The hand has a unique connection to the brain when we are generating and expressing ideas. Writing with a pen forces us to execute sequential strokes, while typing on a keyboard just requires selecting a whole letter by striking a key. And pictures of the brain have shown that sequential finger movements activated the region for thinking, language, creativity and memory.
