Writing Prompt : Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt – Handwriting



My handwriting has gotten so bad, because I barely takes pen to paper anymore.

I remember when I was in the 2nd grade. I couldn’t wait to get to the 3rd grade. Why?, because that’s when they started teaching penmanship (Do they even teach that anymore?) I remember when I first started writing, everything had overly exaggerated loops and curls. I think that lasted until I was in middle school (along with those scented pens)where I thought that it was totally cute and super girly to add all those “extras” like hearts and stars and the ever versatile smiley face.

These days my handwriting looks like chicken scratches that usually only I can read. Partly due to laziness, partly due to the fact that I have the permanent shakes, and the fact that I rarely write (other than my name) these days. You may remember that song Video killed the Radio Star: ? Well It’s fair to say that the computer (or the keyboard) killed my handwriting skills
