I’m Back!

I could have taken a day or two off before blogging again, since I’m not in one of the challenges for December. But I feel as if I have conquered some of the barriers I’ve had that have kept me running away from writing almost my whole life. I don’t look at a screen or a page anymore and see blankness. I see and feel words coming through my brain and being typed or written. I don’t write longhand much anymore, because I write so slowly.

I think it has something to do with how I learned cursive handwriting. In fifth grade, Mrs. McCrorey kept pushing me to write more neatly and legibly. At the beginning of the end, she gave me my first C grade on my report card. That was completely unacceptable. I could live with B’s, but C’s were not going to happen.The next report card I showed improvement, so she gave me a B. It took a few grading periods, but I finally got my grade up to an A. People still comment on how neat my handwriting is when they see it.

I don’t know where I’m going with this next. I think it will be similar to the way we started, but who knows? Thanks for following along for the ride!
