Handwriting intrigues me. I've always liked calligraphy and unique typography, which goes hand in hand with my love of writing and quotations. I've been told countless times that I have nice handwriting, but to me, it's just how I write.

A little while ago I decided to learn calligraphy and so have been doing some practicing. But I keep finding that the script just turns into my normal handwriting since I usually write in cursive. It's hard to not just write how I normally write. I still have a lot of practice to do.

I started playing around with different variations of my blog title. Interesting how the handwriting gradually changes with each try until I end up just writing in print. That's the beauty of handwritten fonts--each word is unique.

I got tired of practicing formal calligraphy, so I just started writing different quotes in my own handwriting. I used a quill pen and inkwell (which I love!) so it's a little more shaky than my normal cursive.

My handwriting looks different to me every time I look at it. I'll just keep practicing for now.
