I love the direct contact to paper it helps me with my creative process. The direct physical contact to the word has a certain charm to it. It gives me a better sense of what I have accomplished and my handwritten paper is more “me.”
Also, after my first hand – written draft I type it onto my laptop, thus my first edit.
