Justin Peters, professional blogger for Slate’s Crime blog, writes out his blog posts long hand in his Moleskin notebook before ever typing them out online.
Sometimes writing something out longhand is a great way to slow down and think about what you want to say. In a world of instant communications, that type of reflection and concentration can definitely be a good thing.
I’ll make a deal with Justin. If he reads this post, gets in touch with me and gives us a shout out, I’ll ship him a handcrafted pen free of charge to replace that cheap disposable pen pictured in his post assuming that is acceptable to Slate. Ballpoint, Rollerball, or Fountain Pen at his choice,
