Handwriting / 手書き thread

Post by mbridge » Fri 08.21.2009 10:59 pm

I'm interested in seeing your handwriting.

Please try to reply only with handwriting.

Also, please try to write on paper using a pencil or pen if possible.
(Handwriting that is written on the computer looks different.)

to be fair, that is a handwriting evaluation thread, where the op wants to make a handwritten conversation. Personally, writing on paper and scanning it is too much trouble for me. I paid $200 for this pen and tablet to write with my computer, so to participate computer handwritten submissions need to be okayed.

Ditto, I'm afraid to say.

I have a tablet PC and a scanner within arms reach of me, and it's STILL too much work for me...

What does that say about me?

I think it's interesting that you keep your notes in English rather than Dutch. Any reason for that?

PS I love your English G, Y and F; very elegant.

It's not entirely in English; "gewoonlÿk", "dehele (betekenis)", and "shuilpl?? regen" are Dutch. So she's actually mixing both languages, which makes it even more interesting. ;)

Thanks for the compliments on some of my writing^^
shine shine shine :mrgreen:

As for the the use of English?? No reason, really. But all Japanese text books are in English, as were our classes, (and half the time my thoughts are English, so....) so for me, Japanese and English are tightly woven together. But sometimes the first (or best) translation that pops into my head is Dutch, hence the mixture.

I'm Dutch too and strangely I also do that, my notes are more in English than Dutch and it does have to do that most material is in English I guess.
I posted mine on the other thread
