An update to my Handwriting practice

As I was preparing my somewhat lengthy handwriting post I realized that I wrote most of it already in an earlier post. So here’s just the update part.

I’m rather satisfied to notice that my handwriting slowly improves. It’s not there where I would like it to be, but it is getting better. Just this morning I realized that I have reached a point in which I can write that fluently in cursive that I start to loose focus and start to make mistakes only for that reason.

I took that as a good reminder to focus on being intentional while writing, and not drift off into automated behaviour, which is the reason I’m doing this is in the first place.

While I’m at the same time getting more and more interested into writing tools, such as notebooks and pens, I can at least also say that I at the moment also make good use of them.

During the last month I wrote 105 pages in my journal and am about to fill my second notebook with practices alone. The more I use it, the more I like to write with a fountain pen. It’s such a delightful experience.

And on that note, I’m happy to notice that my new fountain pen, the Kaweco 70’s Soul and a selection of inks already had been shipped. Looking forward to get my hands on them next week.

And yes: a little bit of backstory you can find in this post.
