Coding On Paper ?

Hi guys. This is more of a general question and I figure I should sort this one out early on to enhance my learning experience and efficiency.

Basically I read a tip on how coding on paper is very important (with a pen) since it makes us more decisive and confident in our skills, plus speeds things up when people ask us to code in front of them without a PC.

So, my question is. Certain choices regarding how big the HTML elements are (with id attributes wrapped around them) in terms of pixels in the browser or what color a hexadecimal code represents, these sort of things. How do I improve this sense on paper?

Since I just started out on the <strong><em>front end dev</em></strong> track, obviously I am figuring things out on the way and re-watching lessons but I want to do better in terms of performance.

Any advice or suggestions? Thanks :) Currently I am on the lesson on classes. It's been a few days I guess, not even a week since I started from scratch.
