The pen is a thing of the past do you agree? Has the computer keyboard really took over writing in the ink pen?
My answer is a simple yes.
The world is a much better place in regards to a keyboard versus a pen in my hands as I can not even read my own handwriting at times!
No. I use it all the time. Pencils, too. I write books in pen, articles on the keyboard. I like the pen because it forces me to slow down and I can turn back the pages rather, see things at a glance, rather than scrolling back to find what I want. I find it just easier on the eyes and brain as well. Sometimes its just good to get away from the computer backlight..
No, I don't completely agree. With a pen I can write on a great many surfaces. With my keyboard, only the screen it happens to be attached to, wirelessly or otherwise.
Hand-written notes are still perceived by many people as more "personal" than emails or type-written pages.
That said, I do prefer to compose with a keyboard.
I feel my writing is better when I write with a pen, not legible but it tends to flow better. That said, I use the keyboard more these days. I mainly use pens to write short notes and ideas when not at my computer.
I sure hope the pen isn't a thing of the past.
Sure, typing is easier and faster, but I've got a feeling we'll all be missing those hard copies of personal letters, letters, and memos and factual information as opposed to that gets misplaced or lost in cyberspace.
I don't agree. I write by hand regularly and keep an eye out for pens with good balance that write well to use.

Well, not just WHAT, you can also say, WHY would that be 'the ONE thing' you could change about your past? It may be an incident, a behaviour, an attitude, a day or a night..simply anything!

An editor reviewed this particular hub and decided that due to the fact that it has been extensively covered they could not get it on Toughnickel. To my surprise I found it doing well on the main site - HubPages.

Pen and/or pencil, or keyboard?When you write, do you prefer the action of handwriting, giving you thinking time and brooding time and chewing the end of the pen/cil time? Or do you prefer the quickness of typing on a computer?

If you could change one thing in your past, what would it be"I would never drink a drop of alcohol. I am an alcoholic , and this has ruined so much of my life. Am on bankruptcy . I would go back in time, and never drink. What would you do, to make your life better?
