It helps to have legible handwriting. Not beautiful or calligraphic, but just legible. Schools don't teach it and parents certainly don't, and art of any kind is an elective in the schools that even offer it any more.

I sign my books with a Parker Centennial Duofold fountain pen a friend purchased for me from Levenger. My handwriting draws as many oohs and aahs as the fact that I've written a book. I'm a vanishing breed.

Loved this! I’ve been a penpaller for 60 years. I make my own cards in addition to purchasing manufactured ones. Many of my family, friends and penpals send handwritten cards as well .... and always handwritten (and some typed) letters. I write my grandchildren and they write me. Handwritten cards and letters are such an important part of the fabric of our lives and history. We need to keep this tradition (and function) alive for many, many reasons. Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts and call to action in this blog post.
