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.

  • My favorite pen is the Pilot Vanishing Point. It is practical as there is no cap to worry about and switching nib sizes is extremely easy.
