So, I have developed a bit of a hate for writing on paper, I don’t mind it but… I also hate it? (For an illogical reason so I just kinda tell myself ‘no, chill, it’s not that bad’). It’s also the only way I take notes or do any writing that isn’t creative.
I blame APs.
When I was in AP Lit my teacher always stressed having a strong hand/fast writing speed because he saw so many people get bad grades because they couldn’t write fast enough.
He stressed this so much that I became deathly afraid that I wouldn’t be able to write fast enough. So I wrote everything on paper. All my notes, all my stories, everything was on paper, paper, paper. (I bought more blank notebooks that year then I ever did before). And I still never thought I was fast enough…
Then comes the AP test, gotta write three essays, each one is forty minutes and…
I write five pages for the first, six pages for the second, and by the time the third came around my hand hurt like hell but I wrote another five pages still. (Granted my handwriting is also rather large, and was pretty illegible because of how fast I was writing.)
Now whenever I write on paper my subconscious reacts with that stressed out alarm system that I’m running out of time and/or just not going fast enough.
But I’ve also gotten pretty good at it and like @Snoe said, I’m the same in that I prefer the feel of paper. (Especially when reading, but writing, too… Although there is something relaxing about the clicking of a keyboard to me). So I don’t mind it? But it stresses me out (illogically, I know) so I’ll go for the computer if available.
