Okay, it's not that bad. Sort of looks cool.
Anyway, I noticed today while I was at work that some data I wrote by hand looked all sorts of pretty. I was taking time to keep it easy to decipher. Of course, I don't do that all the time. I can't be bothered to take too much time. What can I say: I'm impatient.
Have you ever had the moment where you can't read your own handwriting? Well, I have that all the time. Maybe it's because I have a rebel personality. If I don't think something is beneficial to me then I won't do it.
Example: When I learned how to write in cursive, I thought it was super pointless. Therefore, I stopped working hard on it. I still can't write a "Z" in cursive. Sad, huh?
Well, this can't be done when writing a story... Unless if it's the rough draft stage. At that point, it's best just to get the story on the page (at least that's my opinion). It's way important to look at the details, make sure you are using the right words, the write punctuation, showing/not telling, etc... It's not something you can do halfway; you must have complete dedication to your story.
In the past, I don't think I've been as invested in my stories as I should have been. This may be why it has taken me so blasted long to get where I am... And I still have a long way to travel.
Well, what I'm getting at is, when you are writing, put your whole heart and soul into the product. Read through sentences over and over again until you feel it is perfect. Make sure all the emotion of the moment is flooding through the words. It takes time but is well-worth it.
So, how is your penmanship? What is your advice on putting you whole heart and soul into what you write?
