Actual handwriting? Wow. Yours is actually legible -- with my handwriting, I should have been a doctor. :)

Handwriting is very intimate. Also hard to read sometimes!

"And since 1985 I've kept a personal journal mablankwoh(?) - all handwritten."

Mablankwoh? :-)

Just kidding! It was cool to see your writing. Mine is either impossible to read, or it looks like how a teacher writes on a blackboard. Big childish looking letters.

Re: Mablankwoh!
well, of course it'd be a blank book. where would he keep his journal if it wasn't blank?!?

Re: Mablankwoh!
My writing now is kind of a combination of printing and cursive. My 10th grade Social Studies teacher, whom I had a big crush on (and later learned is gay) taught us to write like this. He said it was the fastest short of shorthand. But sometimes I can't even read it!!

Wow, to actually see hand written anything these days is rare. I've never liked my handwriting and it's not always legible I'm afraid.

Even my signature barely resembles my name these days. :-)

Your handwriting is beautiful compared to my own. That's what I love about writing in notebooks, no one but me knows what I've written, it's like writting in code. How bad is my handwriting? 1) I easily read your note 2) All my teachers requested that I write in print and not script (which they compared to hieroglyphics).

Thanks. Everyone's writing is different, and it does evolve over time. But with all the typing we do these days, I think evolution has slowed..

ya know it's funny you posted about this. I actually sat down and sent a handwritten letter to someone last month. five pages. I hadn't done a handwritten letter in a few years. I remember when that use to be the only way I sent letters.

Me too. And it's a very different way of writing--you can't really go back and edit, like you can with a word processor. Your first thoughts are what generally ends up in the letter, for better or for worse.

Actual handwriting is something that I still have to do every day - unfortunately, no patient notes are electronic where I am. I really do write in excess of 1500 words a day

But are your prescriptions readable? I have yet to meet a doctor who had legible handwriting!!!
Mar. 12th, 2005 01:32 pm (UTC)
Actually, yes. Everything is incredibly readable. The only thing that is unusual about my handwriting is that for some reason I don't leave any space between letters in a word - individual letters actually touch the next word. It doesn't prevent readability though.

And for those of us whose notes must be reviewed by our supervisors, handwriting is the perfect tool for payback. It took me a while to figure "in a blank book-all hand written" but I did decipher it.

I think handwriting is often intimate and can be very romantic. I would love to keep correspondance with someone, but after a few rewrites even my own romantic self thinks, "Fuck this, where's my email account?"

hmmm...maybe I should have scanned this..*G*
Mar. 12th, 2005 10:57 am (UTC)
I can read it--and I love your handwriting!!

LOL, Thanks Image hosted by Photobucket.com
My handwriting has always been some kind of cursive-print hybrid so it's always a toss-up whether everything is legible to anyone butImage hosted by Photobucket.com myself.
