A to Z blog challenge: day 2
Theme: Notebooks

The image sells it right away. You should beware of any notebook that makes it difficult in the middle to write all the way down perfectly.

I remember when I was a teenager, I would rip pages appart because my handwriting was shitty. The notebooks that have this bumps at the beginning of the line made it hard for the insane perfectionist in me. I was not even concerned about the story at all, just that my handwriting made me look bad…

I remember buying notebooks and leaving them empty because I didn’t want to ruin them.

So, now you know, get notebooks that have a binding that makes it easy to keep it flat, so your handwriting won’t need to “adjust” to the page.

At one point I’ll share about spiral notebooks, stay tuned.

On Monday: C – Collage (what does that have to do with notebooks?)

With great respect!

  1. My handwriting has never been good. I don’t think lay-flat notebooks would help. Having been involved with computers since 1983, my handwriting has, if you can imlagine it, deteriorated. I make notes now, and can’t read them back an hour later. It makes note-taking very difficult – no, pointless. I did try using a dictating machine for taking notes, but detest the sound of my voice played back. So, I rely on memory. Not so wise, having passed 65!

    Some years ago, I sent my mother a (non-photographic) postcard from a holiday destination I stayed at with my wife. When I got home, Mum thanked me for the postcard and asked me where we’d been!

  2. Oh god, I hate terrible notebooks like that; especially because I’m left-handed which makes using them properly even worse. I tend to go for spiral-bound ones to fix that, but then I often end up breaking them! Love me a notebook that lays flat ❤ haha.

    Good luck with the challenge!
