Typing vs handwriting

Is typing on a computer better or worse for your memory then writing on paper ?

When I'm sending a personal letterI prefer towriteit by hand. However I do find that my brain works faster than my hand does and I end up rushing to jotthings down whilefresh in my head, with the result that sometimes my writing suffers and becomes a scrawl. One advantage of typingmeans letters are easier to edit which is very handy, and for some reason my thoughts flow better when sitting at the keyboard. So in the end I usually settle with a typed letter which I then print out and send in the post, that is if the recipient doesn't have email.

I always hated writing things out even before I knew home computers existed, and I certainly don't miss getting graphite and ink on the side of my hand from my writing position. I tend to think faster than I type though and sometimes leave a word out here and there. I've always remembered things better by hearing them though.
