I learnt writing on blank paper. No lines, only helpless white paper.
I was about 6 years old. My teacher’s name was Sonia
She used to say: „it is ok if your hand writing goes up and down. If you practice, and practice, and practice, it will go straight sooner than you think. Just imagine there is a line where you need it“.
I don’t remember much more than that of my first school year. But I love writing on blank paper. It feels like so much freedom.
Typing might be faster. Using a pencil over a tablet might be similar to handwriting. However, handwriting is still my favourite method for getting emotions and thoughts out of my brain and soul.
