January 23rd - National Handwriting Day

Today is National Handwriting Day so find a pen and test your handwriting skills.

You can read more about the history of cursive writing that the Romans first developed, here.

Now I remember why it was such a chore to write with ink - does anyone know how to get black ink
stains from your fingers?

I'm old enough to still have my Parker pen and ink and be able to write in that script. Sadly not much needed today.

as a lefty, I can make a very smeary mess with cursive.

I understand schools are no longer teaching cursive writing. What a shame.

The school system have just re-instated cursive writing here, thank goodness.
I always took pride in my handwriting, it was a subject judged very seriously in school, later in life I learned Calligraphy, such a beautiful art.
