And this. Smashing thumbs against a smooth glass screen is just... It's not the same. You don't get that satisfaction of CLOSING something real at the end. You don't see the details in the handwriting. The emotions that they carry. You don't get that. I feel like there's a danger in that, you know? We call this "writing" because we don't have a better term for what THIS is. We "write" comments or emails or text messages with a lackadaisical malaise because there is no effort in it. It's just plastic keys that can convey nothing but what the reader infers.
Shit. This got dark. Better take a break and come back to this later.
