Pen mightier than the keyboard

Apparently kids write better and faster with a pen than on a keyboard.

I discovered a long time ago that I write very differently on paper than on the computer. Some of the better stuff I've written was outlined and rough-drafted on paper and later pieced together and edited on the computer. Even if I've already started drafting on the computer, jotting a few notes down on paper has often proved useful.

Funny how the brain works.

I know studies have shown numerous times that there's a link between certain portions of the brain and the manual dexterity associated with handwriting. Wish I could reference the specific study, but it was 10 years ago after all...
