Never Heard Before, Interesting Facts About Writing

Students may have never known about the fact that when a person writes they are able to utilize all four lobes of the brain, but that is necessarily all that is to the process of writing. The more you search, the deeper you look, the more interesting things you will find about. Sure we all agree that writing is certainly not everyone’s favorite pastime hobby, but here are some interesting facts which will let you change the way you looked at it first:

Fact 1:

There is such a term as ‘mogigraphia which means ‘writer’s cramp’ and is used to describe a task specific muscle cramp in the hands.

Fact 2:

When someone says they are suffering from ‘colygraphia’ then you should know they are mentioning ‘writer’s block’ which translates to the inability of a person to generate fresh new ideas in order to proceed with their writing.

Fact 3:

Agatha Christie, the English playwright, author, and novelist suffered from ‘dysgraphia’ (a disease related to the functioning of the brain that damages the ability of a person to write). For this reason she would always dictate her work to another person to write it down for her.

Fact 4:
