Let’s Get Started: Why you should handwrite rather than type your journal entries


There is a lot to be said for handwriting your journal entries.

  • It helps you engage more with your writing.
  • You can write easily on the move – never forget an inspiring thought again, just keep a notebook and pen with you.
  • Following on from above… write anywhere and everywhere.
  • There is less temptation to procrastinate.
  • Handwriting your entries helps you to focus on the task at hand and
  • allows you to develop your thoughts and allows your thoughts to expand and grow without distraction.

Of course, you can do it on a computer and there are some well-reviewed journaling software programs out there, but my experience is that it’s too easy to edit your thoughts on a computer. Handwriting keeps things more spontaneous and honest.
