It may be only four days into NaBloPoMo, but I am totally jumping on a free post idea from Beth and Chris. Following their lead, I'm posting a sample of my handwriting. Yes, it's in purple ink. I considered writing it in orange, but wasn't sure how well that would scan. What can I say... I like colored pens. It makes writing more fun.
I'm kind of annoyed by the slanty-ness of this, but that's what you get for my writing on a blank piece of paper instead of a ruled one. (For those curious, I prefer college rule to wide... wide rule makes me twitchy.) I can write a little neater than this if I'm writing a short note or card or something, but I figured the point of this was to be as honest as possible about my actual handwriting. This is also a little more on the cursive side -- my handwriting is usually a combination of print and cursive, although sometimes I write in all print to make it more uniform and neat. And like I mentioned, I do not like crossing things out, so if I am writing something and make a mistake towards the top of the page, I will often start over and rewrite it on a new page. (Totally wasting paper, yes I know.) If I've already written a significant amount, I will cross it out, very, very neatly. But those are issues for another day. :-)
I'd love to see your handwriting as well... if you decide to do a handwritten post, please leave a link here. Don't you think it's interesting that we all learned how to print and write in cursive exactly the same way back in grade school, but we all have totally unique styles now?
