Writing your way to a family history — 3 Comments

  1. Thanks for that, Jill. I see you say this struck a chord because your once-beautiful writing has gone to pot. At school I was forced to write sloping to the right, because I was right-handed; my natural style was to slope backwards. My writing now goes every which way, depending on how fast and carefully I'm writing and what I'm writing with. I do still enjoy putting pen to paper, though.

  2. I have enjoyed the mechanical process of writing from a young age. There is something about the sense of lead pencil moving rhythmically across white paper that is meaningful to me, something about marking a surface with symbols as a process that enables us to capture human thought. Thanks for this post Pauline, it has got me thinking.
