I'm a champion typist. Maybe close to 80-90 words a minute at my pique. (We had typing class when I was in highschool - on TYPEWRITERS!) Well, good typing means nothing when you return to the world of written correspondence. I'm writing a few thank you notes and it looks like a (no offense Latinitas) a 5th grader wrote them. I am writing executives at big companies and I can't even stay even. I used to love my handwriting that evolved from loopy wide curves in my L and my D and the later to a more structured font I learned as one of 2 girls in my high school that took Mechanical Drawing, a precursor to learning architecture. Now, I write as I am in madness, scratchy, illegible. My hand hurts actually from the writing. I am physically aching from the badness of it. Technologist swore books would disappear and magazines too and that writing by hand would join them in becoming somewhat obsolete, yet a handwritten note still has so much more humanity than a typed one. I'm going to practice my writing, go back to the beginning and get a big pencil maybe.
