This wasn't an article as such . I just googled something like &quot;What is the difference between hand writing and computer journaling?&quot; I have a head injury, with a lot of memory issues. I need to make the most out of my writing because I will forget what I have accomplished if it's not in my journal. One of the scientific sites mentioned that by hand writing, you're making your RAS ( reticular (something) in your brain more active. That's what I was referring to when I said writing by hand helps you retain more. (I am constantly looking for ways to bypass the limits due to my brain injury) . I hope this answers your question!

Elizabeth,
Thanks for answering! Yes, that makes sense. Writing by hand definitely does something for memory. smile

I am also messing with a program that lets one make an actual font out of their own handwriting! I have a font done, so when I write in my digital journal it really does look handwritten!

I have been thinking about this problem, But I insist writing by hand, 'cause I am afraid that my ability of writing would be degenerated, thus my suggestion is that when you can write, write as soon as possible!:)

Right you are! The bottomest of the bottom line is, to me, doing it YOUR WAY. Not my way, not the author of a book's way... YOUR WAY. Take all kinds of hints and suggestions from books and sites and anyplace else, and make it work for YOU. Feel free to change as you see fit. That's the joy of a journal... YOU are the boss, the head high honcho, the Big Cheese, the captain of the ship! What other things in your life are that cool?

Well, since we started this topic, I think a lot more people have come to use tablets like the I-pad and even phones to keep a journal. How does that affect how one writes? Seems like the spontaneity would be better, yes?

I cannot afford anything like that right now, but perhaps in the future....?

So, anyone care to share?

Either you are writing through hand or typing on computer, it matters how perfection ally you write and feels the written words emotionally. That’s the guru mantra for writing well.

Right! I still maintain that the absolute best way, in fact the ONLY way, a person should ever write a journal is...

YOUR way!

Not my way, not the way of a famous journal author, not the way the journaling seminar leader said you should, but your own way. Not that you can't glean many great tips, hints, and great ideas from journaling books, seminars, and websites, and of course, this message board, but (in my not at all humble opinion) you should take such ideation and make it work your own way, for you!

Again, my opinion... I think writing should be a pleasure. Fun, even. And who can have fun when they're conscious of this rule and that rule they think they should be following? cool Journaling is also a super way of releasing stress. Piling on rules to follow kind of defeats the purpose.

As for electronic journaling, I had to give up hand-writing my journal years ago due to pain in my hands and wrists from arthritis, carpal tunnel, and fibromyalgia. I found myself not writing as much, or stopping when I wanted to write more, on account of pain!

So I started writing on the computer, and over the years I have gotten used to it. I've figured out all kinds of ways to make it unique and totally my own! For instance, I use fun page borders and templates, make my own fonts, and the page numbers are dachshund weenie dogs!
