scrunched m’s

The first book blogger review of Waiting for You is out! Here’s what the Compulsive Reader thought about it.

Dedicated readers of this blog know that I like to keep it old school. This proclivity applies to handwriting. Spending way more hours in front of the computer and less time writing on actual paper has disturbing consequences. I’ve noticed that my m’s are, alarmingly, all scrunched. It’s a sudden change that I’m consciously working on reversing every day. Kitty Burns Florey explores the lost art of penmanship in Script & Scribble: The Rise and Fall of Handwriting. When’s the last time you saw someone write in script (besides signatures)? I don’t even think kids learn it in elementary school anymore. I worry for script. It may become the next duckbilled platypus.

But today, I’m doing a happy dance. In less than a month from now, it will be spring. I even heard a mourning dove the other day. There are green spaces in sunshine waiting for you at the end of the windchill factor. Cheers.

  1. I am so excited to read Waiting for You! It looks incredible. Also I always write in script. In fact I feel weird writing in print anymore.
