Over the last seven years of my degree (results the week before Christmas) I've done a lot of writing. The result? A pad of hardened skin on the middle finger of my right hand.
Evidence of a hard life [snark]! You can see a difference (I promise) if you go to the Flickr page and have a peek at one of the larger photos. EDIT: I've now remembered to make the photos "public" as opposed to "private". Oops!
The pad used to be bigger than this. I use computers much more than I used to, for example at primary and secondary school, and so it's gone down.
My handwriting changes with my level of health and also with the type of pen I use. I have found it more ledgible with a fountain pen when compared to a ball point. Mid-way would be a pencil, but I tend to smudge it!
An example of my hand writing.
This entry is linked to "Q is for Quill", in which I wax lyrical (not really) about fountain pens.

Yes!! I have a dent and a callus on my right index finger from 34 years of pencil/pen grip writing at school. 34 years of school: Wow!!!By 2paw, at Friday, 17 November, 2006
Nice hands though!! Very nice!!
I have a gnarly disfigured middle digit from writing. It's a little less noticeable than before, but it's mostly permanent. Even the nail grows in all wonky, but grip those things way too hard, can't stop it no matter how hard I try.By Aprilynne, at Friday, 17 November, 2006
(the flickr photo wouldn't let me see it)
I wonder if the fountain pen writes nicer b/c you don't have to jam it into the paper so hard to get it to work? less stressful? hmmmm deep thoughts hahaha
