The downside of relying on typing my writings is when I have to write with a pen, I get stuck. I'm not good at doing freewrites. I'm spoiled from being able to work at jobs where I have access to computers or word processors. That's why I was never good at in-class finals when I was taking college classes.
The last time I handwrote an article was when I was in solitary confinement. I didn't have a choice.
I'm working on an article right now, just typing away.
