Write on!

Words are awesome.  Writing is even more so.  And it encompasses so much.

You can write a thank you note.  Or a love letter.  You can write a novel.  You can make a list.  Or a bullet journal.  You can scribble, or you can type, or you can create works of art with calligraphy.  You can use a typewriter, or a pencil, or a laptop, or an outrageously expensive fountain pen.  You can spraypaint on a wall (although you might check local municipal ordinances before doing so).  You can trace your name in the wet sand at the beach.  You can use sandbags to spell GOODBYE (see the final episode of M*A*S*H, if you haven't already).  You can tattoo anything you want onto your body.  

And you can always write more.  And you can always write better.  Want to learn how?

Practice your handlettering and calligraphy with a video tutorial from Creativebug.
