Every Wednesday, Aaron at https://confusingmiddle.com/2022/01/19/sunday-scribblings-89-handwriting/ shares a new writing prompt. This week, the prompt is handwriting.
Handwriting can reveal a lot about people, there is an entire science about it, but honestly, I never really took the time to get into it.
My own handwriting is very much depending on my mood. But, it is often quite sloppy and I often have people at work commenting on it. In a hurry, my handwriting is hardly legible.
I noticed though, depending on the pen, my handwriting gets better or worse.
Many years ago, a person who was a friend back then gave me a fountain pen. I adore that one and use it all the time. Used – until I lost it at the hospital at the end of last year. It’s a long(er) story that I will not get into right now. Anyway… I loved that fountain pen and was devastated when I lost it. I ordered a new one. Exact same – pretending that it will be a birthday present to myself. Imagine what happened? Yeah… No surprise, I found the pen at the bottom of my handbag the exact day the new one arrived in the mail. My handbag is a large tote bag with lots of room. I bought it online last year. I am not sure it is still available, but here is a photo.
It looks better in real than on the pic. Hehe… I own at least 4 more bags from Society 6.
Back to handwriting. I share pictures with handwritten poetry quite often. And many people compliment me on my penmanship. It’s a nice thing, I think.
Both are things I wrote. One is legible and one is decipherable. Hehe.
How’s your handwriting? Do you write by hand at all?
