In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Handwritten.”
When was the last time you wrote something by hand? What was it?
Over the past year, I became a letter writer and I recently wrote my niece a letter acknowledging and celebrating her recent graduation and her college start. However, I wrote the letter using an actual “Quill and Pen.” Dipping the quill into the inkwell and writing on burnt colored parchment paper gave me an incredible sensation of nostalgia. Folding and sliding the paper into a matching colored envelope and sealing with a monogram letter stamped in red wax, this was an overwhelming experience.
I hope my letter will become a keepsake item and in the coming years she will come across my letter and look upon it as a “Handwritten” ancient form of communication.
