On Hand Writing


no hurry, no pause.


I had a sudden insight for handwriting (Friday Nov. 17th, 2023). Just relax your hand and let the pen glide on paper to leave the marks required to form the words. At first, it’s difficult but when you don’t think it’s easy.

Here’s how it works, the best method is to use a fountain pen. Let the mind be on its own to move the pen on paper thereby enabling the free flow of ink onto paper. To help the process, don’t look closely at what’s being written, just relax the hand and mind to write by not writing in a habitual way. The result isn’t always pretty, but I feel that with practice, it’ll be more legible. The mind effortlessly guides the flow of ink onto paper to transform the thought into written words.
