Over the last seven years of my degree (results the week before Christmas) I’ve done a lot of writing. The result? A pad of hardened skin on the middle finger of my right hand.
Evidence of a hard life [snark]! You can see a difference (I promise) if you go to the Flickr page and have a peek at one of the larger photos. EDIT: I’ve now remembered to make the photos “public” as opposed to “private”. Oops!
The pad used to be bigger than this. I use computers much more than I used to, for example at primary and secondary school, and so it’s gone down.
My handwriting changes with my level of health and also with the type of pen I use. I have found it more ledgible with a fountain pen when compared to a ball point. Mid-way would be a pencil, but I tend to smudge it!
This entry is linked to “Q is for Quill“, in which I wax lyrical (not really) about fountain pens.
