Writing allows us to express ourselves, to process and articulate emotions through the power of words, says Montalescot.

Chinese writer and calligrapher Feng Tang never leaves home without his fountain pen. Handwriting, he says, not only boosts his creativity, it helps him relax and process his thoughts and emotions and make sense of the world.

"Writing helps me process... it helps me slow down and find a balance. It doesn't just help me create, writing helps me escape the busyness of work and life," he said in a recent online session organised by luxury pen, watch and leather goods brand Montblanc to promote their #InspireWriting initiative.
