Life of a Blogger: Handwriting

Life of a Blogger is a weekly feature hosted by Jessi at Novel Heartbeat, which is all about what us bloggers do when we aren't blogging.

When I was a teenager, I used to write for hours - I filled notebooks with stories and notes and ideas and it would take a long time until I got handcramp.  Nowadays however, after just a few lines I can't write anymore.

I also have different handwriting depending on the occassion, as you can see below:

Therefore, most of the time, I write in a cursive scribble because my hand hurts too much when I write more than a post-it note.

    I like your handwriting, Kat, especially your Z. Mine looks like a 2 with a line in the middle :)

    That is a great 'Z'! I would love to write my Zs like that :) My handwriting has a habit of changing a lot too, especially if I write for a long time!

  3. I have the same problem! I used to write AAALL the time, but now just writing a few sentences makes my hand hurt. I've gotten too used to typing! The only time I ever write on a daily basis any more is 1) to sign my initials at work for tasks completed and 2) to write in my checkbook, haha. I actually miss writing!
    You sound like me, I tend to scribble too when I'm in a hurry...to the point that it's practically illegible :D

    I used to write all the time in journals, just absent minded doodled thoughts, stories etc... I even wrote but never finished a time travel fantasy epic that included a language and full hand written/drawn maps of the world. Unfortunately a mixture of blogging, kids, the heavy reliance on digital technology and the advent of email I don't write much in print anymore. Sure I sign my name on documents and receipts and write the occasional card to someone but that is basically it. Everything else I type. Actually thinking on it this post really makes me sad. :(

  5. I have different handwriting styles too. I always wonder what that would mean to a handwriting expert lol

  6. I used to write for hours too, but fell out of the habit once I got my first computer. Now I'm lucky if I can write a few lines on a birthday card before I get hand cramps! Sad, but I think handwriting is going the way of the dodo bird.

  7. I still write tons, mainly because I'm still a student. So I have to write tons. During exams though my hands can cramp easily. It's so difficult to write neatly and quickly at the same time. I always end up writing in script. I don't think I've ever written in caps though. I think it's because it's a no go in chemistry. Capitalized and not capitalized can mean completely different things.

  8. I try to write in caps all the time because my writing is atrocious otherwise!

  9. Great write-up! Writing is a talent, and it must not be wasted. As with everything that we had been entrusted, we should let it grow and share it with the world.> self development plan, writing ideas
