We are given pencils in school as we learn to write and then introduced to pens as the standard in junior high. Until the invention of erasable ink, many of us learned to hate the writing process because mistakes often meant do-overs. College writing was on the computer so I seemed to have escaped the "tryanny" of ink. I simply stopped physical writing after that. No more hand written anything! I've recently come back to physical writing for the cognitive and therapudic benefits over typing, especially using a bullet journal. I simply would not have braved this without the Pilot Frixion pen. The Frixion pen gives me permission to make mistakes and improve what I have written in the past. This gives me freedom to try to write and gain all the benefits of the physical process. So make your mistakes with technology like the Frixion pen. It's not about perfection, it's about improvement .
