The Power of the Pen
It's long been well known that the pen is mightier than the sword. It's less well known that it is mightier than any other writing implement.

He claims "writing by hand is part of my creative process. The speed at which I write with a pen seems to be the speed at which my imagination finds the best forms of words." Whether you agree or disagree, it is, as they say, "a good read."
