    There’s something to be said for handwriting instead of typing, isn’t there? I still do that with my writing journals – gives it a more personalized feel. :)

    Your handwriting is so pretty. It looks like a computer font!

  2. I always handwrite first drafts, and I’m a fountain pen fanatic. I can’t handwrite blog posts, though, because my handwriting sucks. :-)

    Is that your handwriting? It’s so, so pretty. I agree with Shari that it looks very much like a computer font.

    Is that your real handwriting? It’s so … legible. I have dozens of journals that I hand wrote (back before I ever owned a computer) over the years, but now I type everything-even journal entries. I don’t miss the permanent callous I had on my middle finger from holding a pen so often. But there is something so wonderful and refreshing about reading a handwritten blog post! Thank you!

  5. Kristan, this post is so neato. You got a fountain-pen present? That’s a seriously chummy chum you’ve got there. A keeper. Your handwriting is pretty stellar. xx

    Holy crap, is that your handwriting?

  7. Kristan says:

    Lol yep, that’s my real handwriting. On good behavior. When I’m in a hurry, it’s not that nice. (And when I’m trying really hard, the r’s don’t look like v’s.)

  8. Really lovely handwriting. I think hand writing in cursive is a lost art. No one seems to care how it looks anymore. I still do though.

  9. BTW, may I borrow the idea?

    Oh absolutely! I borrowed it from Honey Rock Dawn: http://honeyrockdawn.com/category/off-the-grid/

  11. You have the nicest handwriting in the world! And what a great gift! I handwrite all my drafts first…it keeps me away from the dangerous Internet! :) Congrats again!

    You know, I’ve been considering that more and more… I also self-edit a bit less when I write by hand, which would lend itself to the drafting process.
