Response to appalachiablue (Original post)

6. I have noticed that if I handwrite something I remember it more readily.

I expect it's the physicalization that carves the act into brain neurons differently. Typing is reflexive and automatic.

I can type-transcribe multiple pages of text quickly and barely register what the words are, but handwriting is slower and feels permanent.

This might just be me since I handwrite so infrequently; I know authors who do every initial draft on legal pads and would never change their process.
