How Writing and the Printed Word Rewired Our Brains | tech graffiti | Creative Writing Inspiration | Scoop.it

By Yvonne McArthur

 

"The written word can seem a little old hat compared to the wonders of the digital world, but it was truly revolutionary. In fact, access to writing and books not only completely altered the world we live in, but changed the way we think and perceive.

"I want to think quietly, calmly, spaciously, never to be interrupted, never to have to rise from my chair, to slip easily from one thing to another, without any sense of hostility, or obstacle.
