Celebrate Handwriting

imageLast Saturday was National Handwriting Day, but for me everyday is a handwriting day. I write into my reading journey and keep notes. I could have done it on my iPad but I just prefer scribbling thoughts down as I read. In my bag I have at least two black-in pens in case I lose one or it runs out of ink. I just bought a new journal as shown in the picture. It’s a local Thai-made one with very flexible binding so I can roll the whole thing over without damaging the spine. At home or travel, my bag is not complete without a pen and a notebook.

  1. You’re handwriting is really. I wish I could write like that.

  2. Nice handwriting. I miss the feel. Giving up the already-typed-up nature of tablet notes is too much to bear though.

  3. Your note taking hand writing is impressive. I like the grid style journal you use.

  4. People say I have nice “teacher” handwriting, but yours is amazing. I can tell I type way more than I write because my hand cramps just jotting down in my reading journal the books I’ve read the past month. It’s like a use it or lose it muscle I guess! I should do more handwriting. Maybe I will incorporate some into my art. That would be cool.

  5. Your handwriting is as lovely as you are! I do think the neatness and style of a person’s handwriting is, to a large extent, proportionate to his/her language ability and literary skills.

  6. In my youth, I wrote thousands of pages of journals in hardcopy books. Now, I cannot write a one-line note with a pen that I can read later. I cannot even think creatively without a keyboard. My fingers on a keyboard, and things come out of my head smoothly. If I only have a pen, nothing flows.

    That is not in the spirit of your post, and I don’t really miss handwriting. Hopefully, there will always be keyboards for me.

  7. My book journal that I’ve had since 2010 recently got ruined in a rainstorm (backpack not zipped up properly) and I had to buy a new one and re-record all my reads. Every day is handwriting day for me. Ouch.
