Penmanship is important
As I began to put my pen against paper, right there in the middle of me writing, one of the guys said, "Wow, look at your handwriting, it is beautiful." I thanked him and continued to write because we were on a time limit to do this assignment. The other guy then says to me, "Look at how your pen glides across the paper like that." I thanked him as well and looked up at the clock and said, "Ok, guys we got like two more minutes to finish this." As they talked on the topic, I wrote; but when the instructor called for times up and then we went on break, the two guys wanted to talk more of my handwriting.
One of the guys said that it looks like I wrote the Declaration of Independence and the other guy said, "Yeah, Thomas Jefferson said it and she wrote it." It was like I wasn't even sitting there because they started talking in third person but I do believe penmanship is important. When I was in elementary school, I practiced writing because I did want to have a nice handwriting and I guess practice does eventually make perfect but I declare I did not write the Declaration of Independence.
