Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt #36 is “Begin.”
Word Prompt: Begin
I used to hand write journals for years. Then I had laptops at home and in the office, it was so easy to flip them open and move my fingertips. In addition, my husband bought me an iPad, I could take note and email the notes to myself. With auto-correction of the spelling, I totally depended on the technology. Occasionally when I do need to write, my handwriting doesn’t look like my calligraphy anymore.
The beginning of this year, I started my old habit again. When I have my coffee and quiet time in the morning, I hand write my thoughts in a new journal.
Surprisingly, I pay more attention to the spelling, because the paper and pen don’t have the auto-correct ability.
I used to be a “phone directory” of the family. I memorized a lot of phone numbers. Right now, I am not confident if I remember my husband’s cell phone number correctly. Perhaps I should begin to memorize phone numbers again!
What do you think about handwriting notes and memorizing phone numbers!
