There has never been anything quite so personal as writing in a journal, diary or notebook, especially in today’s look-at-me blogosphere.

Writing in longhand is a private communion, and a personal bulwark against all things digital. Handwriting is the perennial link to your youth, as a student and dreamer, just you and your thoughts as best your hand can inscribe them between covers. And it’s the forever connection to the great writers, whose initial notes for their works are no less skeletal than your own. Notebooks bring out the journalist – or at least the secret journal – in everyone.
