Posted on

In the memory of John Hancock,  the National handwriting day is on Jan 23rd.  In the modern world when things are moving to digital, take a moment to embrace the traditional method of writing.  While things are moving at blazing speed, there is something about the pen , paper and the ink.  It creates a great feeling and you are able to suddenly take your time and slow down.  It allows you to put things into perspective and value the art of writing.  

You can start National Handwriting Day  with these ideas  to help you started with the analog world

- Start writing a journal or write a page everyday.  Something which comes to your mind and just start writing or may be write about the day!

- Write a letter to your loved one or parents or your children.  The value of handwritten letter is priceless. Emails might be forgotten but a letter will be cherished. 

- Whip out your favorite pen and may be it needs the cleaning or ink refilled? Give it the extra love.  Write with it until you feel fulfilled.  

- Share your handwritten letter online to the world.  use instagram, facebook, pinterest or any media and hashag it #nationalhandwritingday

  • I am always looking for MORE reasons to write. I write letters and postcards daily. I write on a fb page for writing and I write in several journals throughout the week, one of which is a family history journal where I write about people that are long since gone but will never be forgotten that have touched my life. You are giving me more to write about while I am on leave at home. Thank you!

  • I am just starting out using fountain pens and have the TWSBI eco that I love. I will be trying new pens as time goes on but am planning on getting more. I’m hooked!
