When I was in 2nd grade, I won 3rd place in a penmanship contest. To this day, I still pride myself on good penmanship and, sometimes, spend hours practicing my lowercase A’s and crossing my T’s. So when I saw that Paper Source was holding a Copperplate Script workshop, I signed up.
It was harder than it looked. It takes a lot of concentration to make the thin and thick lines with the pen and nib, but by the end of 3 hours, I felt like I could hold the pen correctly and make some legible letters!
Now I feel 9, again. All I want to do is practice my handwriting in my lined composition notebook.
