Hello everyone! I am back from my hiatus with a few thoughts on writing- handwriting!
When I was in high-school I loved practicing different writing styles.
My writing bordered on calligraphy but I practiced everyday style writing until I found a style I liked for daily use. I cannot draw my way out of a paper bag, but I can make some pretty lettering.
Recently I decided I wanted to tap into that love of writing, physically writing, and started learning calligraphic writing styles.
I am in handwriting heaven!
I love seeing each letter take form and adding those flourishes. I always loved a traditional script, fancy pens, pretty stationary, and the pleasing formation of each letter. My writing took a hit over the years from lack of practice (due to the electronic age) but I am bringing it back into my life.
What do you love that is considered outdated? Besides me, of course. I know I am a little outdated in today's world.
