Write Something With A Pen On National Handwriting Day

January 23 is National Handwriting Day. Fonts are the same no matter what computer you use or how you use it. Fonts lack a personal touch. Handwriting can add intimacy to a letter and reveal details about the writer’s personality.

The Writing Instrument Association in America are celebrating January 23 as the National Handwriting Day in an effort to revive that dying art of handwriting.

Some ink bloggers who are celebrating the Handwriting day include GBM, Sumocat and Rodney.

So let’s celebrate – step away from the computer keyboard, pick a pen or pencil and write something.
