We all know most people are typing nowadays. Are there some instances that people would switch to writing instead?
I think this is not because of boredom but for aesthetic reasons instead. I think some people have feelings when they write instead of typing. Also, there are some pieces or materials that can only be more meaningful when handwritten.

Absolutely! I personally am someone who enjoys the physical act of handwriting, and I learn better when I write something, too, so I can’t see myself ever transitioning to typing full time (although, believe me, I type a LOT).
There are plenty of places I prefer handwriting over typing: to do lists, journaling, writing a letter/card, taking notes in a class, etc. I also tend to flip back and forth when working on more formal writing. Personally, I prefer to type out a draft, print it, and edit it by hand. There’s something about physically holding my writing that I can’t let go! However, when drafting, I definitely prefer the efficiency of typing over handwriting.
It’s all a personal choice, and I can’t see that either will be going away any time soon, so I’m not worried about having to choose!
