Today is National Handwriting Day! Yippee!
National Handwriting Day is an opportunity to reintroduce yourself to a pen or pencil and a piece of paper. In this day of computers, more and more information, notes, and letters are sent back and forth via a keyboard and cyberspace.
According to the Writing Instrument Manufacturers Association (WIMA) website "The purpose of National Handwriting Day is to alert the public to the importance of handwriting. According to WIMA, National Handwriting Day is a chance for all of us to re-explore the purity and power of handwriting."
Today is the day to reveal your handwriting to the blogosphere! My challenge to you is this: write a brief note to your readers by hand, scan it and upload it to your blog. If you leave the link in the comments of this post, I will post it here.
I'll be adding an image of my own handwriting later today (this borrowing a computer stuff is for the birds!!).
I hope you'll participate and invite your readers to participate as well!
Signing off until I can get my hands on another computer. . .
Ann, from Whatever Things, was the first to get her handwriting posted to her blog. Thanks for playing, Anne!
You can see my chicken scratch here.
Rebecca shows us "How not to Write." I think her handwriting is very legible, don't you?
Kim from the Upward Call shares her very neat and tidy handwriting.
So does her hubby, Buggy. He shares some good advice in a very nice hand.
My dear friend, Dorothy, has her sample posted now. You've got to go read what she's thinking. . .
Lisa from Lisa Writes shows us her very cheery handwriting and tells us about a new skill.
It's really fun seeing everyone's hand writing style! Keep 'em coming!
Ellen, the Happy Wonderer, wandered in and posted her sample. She's another neat and tidy writer!
Check out Carla's penmanship! She's GOOD!
Scott, the Crusty Curmudgeon, used a real fountain pen and a beautiful ink to write his sample.
My friend Kate, from regainingparadise, (Australia!) takes advantage of the difference in the time zones to sneak hers in on the 23rd!
Jen arrived a little later to the party, but that didn't stop her!
Eija, from Clay in His Hands, demonstrates her prodigious photography skills as well as the challenges of being a 'lefty.'
