    Probably. There was a US Civil War historian, Shelby Foote, who gained fame
    following a multi-part tv documentary in the US about fifteen years ago --it
    turns out he could speak on-screen almost as well as he could write! He had
    written several very long books on the Civil War, and, famously, he did all
    his writing with a dip pen. He said it helped to focus his thoughts, and I'm
    sure it also helped him to step back in time a bit. Of course, he still had
    to make life bearable for his editor, so at the end of a day of writing, he
    would take his hand-written pages and transcribe them with his manual
    typewriter.
