As the hand-written word disappears from our everyday lives replaced by Wattpad, Word and a multitude of other applications available to us. I imagine that future generations will look at notebooks filled with writer's ideas and manuscripts in the same way as we look at cave drawings and Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic.
|Tam o'Shanter, Robert Burns|
I agree we have to embrace change because it's important in our world. However, I can't help feeling a little sad when I think it's unlikely that future generations will be able to examine notebooks belonging to greats such as those we can see today in our museums.
