Put your John Hancock on this
National Handwriting Day was established by the Writing instrument Manufacturers Association in 1977. The idea behind it is to promote the consumption of pens, pencils, and writing paper. The date of January 23rd was chosen because John Hancock, the first person who signed the Declaration of Independence, was born on this day.
How can you observe #nationalhandwritingday
- Send a handwritten letter to someone
- Write a short story
- Write a to do list
- Use a sticky note to compliment someone
- Take a class on calligraphy
- Buy a new writing instrument and actually use it
- Write out an apology to someone even if you don’t send it. It can be very cathartic.
- Draw something on paper. I know, I know there are some great drawing apps out there, but try it you might like it.
