    I have trouble reading my own writing. And that is printing. It would be worse with cursive.

    So many people print. I just don’t get it.

    Yep, I gave up writing cursive when taking notes in Uni. Couldn;t read them back accurately – not a good look for revising. Now I write a kinda’ joined-up printing, which is at least legible.

    I started printing when I joined the military it was how every log had to be filled out block lettering. So printing became a habit I never got out of.

    No one except my wife can read her writing (most of the time). She’s a nurse but could have been a doctor given she had that handwriting thing down pat.

    Should have said she was a natural left-hander and school insisted she must write right-handed. Wouldn’t be politically correct now-days.

    Black out! Black-out skits are not so common in print media as in film and video, but it works here as Pilsner fades to black in panel 5 (or changes abruptly to black, in truth)….

    They don’t even teach cursive in school anymore.

    Cursive writing became obsolete along with dip pens and fountain pens when the ballpoint pen became commonplace after WW2. It will be kept alive by those of us with a special interest in archaic writing instruments, but is no longer a basic necessity for communication in English.

    I always call my research notes “scribbles” and to anyone else that’s all they look like

    I have had enough trouble reading my own scratches that I’ve had to use magnifying glass to try to decipher them

    Doesn’t happen often but I have even had to go back and look something up again because I just wasn’t sure enough what I wrote in the first place

    My Doctor tells me to send all notes to her via email, as she can’t read my hand printing or writing. That’s sad eh?
