I've tried to break myself of the computer habit from time to time, but I always go back to typing. I'm a much faster while typing, my hands don't cramp up, and my handwriting is not pretty. However, I think not being able to continually revise your writing makes one more thoughtful and productive. Typing has probably affected people's perceptions of the 'permanence' of their works. If you can go back and immediately revise what you've written/published online, it never seems like you've really 'finished' something until you print it off. I don't know if that's bad, but it's different.
I never really learned how to write in cursive, so when I do now it is slow and arduous. I know it's shallow, but I'd like to have elegant handwriting. When I do get around to writing in a journal, I like to use Moleskine notebooks, just because they're so damned attractive!
Misopogon, ma molto bene scrivi l'Inglese! Se non ho giÃ saputo che tu sia Italiano, penserei che l'Inglese sia il tua lingua nativa. (Mi scusi per il mio Italiano povero!)
