Ultimate Typing™ reports that taking the time to create a hand-written letter rather than typing it makes all the difference in the world. In a recent blog post, the fountain pen is commemorated by the eReflect blog editors, as modern-day writers are urged to write the conventional way once in a while.

Touch typing is not a momentary trend, and the more technology finds its way into daily life, the more older habits eventually will die out.

eReflect, software developer of Ultimate Typing™, published a new blog post that seeks to remind both new and older readers of the fact that, despite the omnipresence of cutting-edge technology, there are cherished, hard-to-find items that make every aspect of written communication more personal and effective. In the recently-published blog post, the fountain pen is explored as a treasured item of bygone eras. The editor takes readers down memory lane as she describes the various stages of hand-writing, from goose-feather quills to modern-day disposable plastic ballpoint pens, up to the now ubiquitous pen-free practice of keyboarding. eReflect recommends that using hand-held tools like pens to take care of personal correspondence adds a more intimate, direct touch to otherwise typical exchanges of written communication.

Touch typing is not a momentary trend, and the more technology finds its way into daily life, the more older habits eventually will die out. This, however, hasn’t stopped famous fountain pen makers from continuing to produce what once was the norm, creating pens that provide a high-end experience that’s timeless and giving a touch of luxury to everyday routine.

Although it would be counterproductive to go back to pen-and-paper writing in all situations, it is nonetheless a good reminder to occasionally go back to using regular and fountain pens — the latter of which are now often only found in specialist shops and costing up to 3000% the price of a plastic pen. Unlike keyboarding, handwriting let an individual's personality shine through. Be it an exaggerated twist on the letter T or a quirky tilting of the letter G, handwriting peculiarities make for a reminder of how unique everyone's handwriting is.

eReflect urges typists to contemplate turning off the computer and picking up pen and paper when writing their next letter, and seeing for themselves how more connected and personal the whole process becomes with the simple act of crafting each letter by hand rather than typing it on a keyboard. A simple note to a loved one or a memo to a co-worker will serve to remind people that behind the best typing skills there are still people with unique handwriting.
