Awakening Dreams & Conquering Nightmares with a Pen
If I had a dollar for every time a kiddo whined, "But I can't read cursive..." I would never have to work again. Ugh.
That makes me very sad.
I used to like writing fancy squiggly letters when I was little, but I didn't know it was called cursive then. But yeah, not all that practical!
Learning how was one of the most exciting days of my early life. ~grin~ Be well!
I hate to see anything that I have known through my life die esp when I had to wrack my brain to learn it! haha....But I don't usually write in cursive, I print most of the time. Actually I do a mix of both but more printing. With someone, not me, that has beautiful hand writing, cursive looks so nice.
I just love writing (messy) cursive in my journals. ~grin~ I remember coming home to tell my mother the day we started learning cursive and she didn't understand until I rephrased it as 'longhand'.
Even though my cursive is like a child's writing, I think it is a shame it is no longer taught. I blame my being left-handed as a reason for my bad writing.
Oh, my darlin', lefties rock. I write messy either hand, both of which I've practiced for mental stimulation. Love you!
Thank you for taking time to share your opinion. Hearing from readers adds immensely to my joy of writing!
