Never underestimate the power of the hand. Bet I got you scared given the title of this post combined with the first line. Well get your minds out of the gutter, because I'm simply going to tell you about my day thus far. There will be another post later this evening so this is merely a bonus because I'm in a good mood.
So as you read yesterday, my nerves have been shot by postal school . Last week I learned about Infrared Thermography in a class that can only be describes as information packed. A week was barley enough to go over all the material. This week I have Airborne Ultrasound which is basically should have been a two day course but someone decided to stretch out to five. The pace has been excruciatingly slow, so this morning I decided to try a new approach.
I got to class started reading through the day's material. i ignored the instructor and the plethora of comments from the cheap seats (those made by my fellow students) and in about forty minutes I was done.
So what did I do for the next three hours? WRITE!
To the the instructor and those sitting around me it must have looked like a was taking some very detailed notes, but in reality I finished the chapter that I started last night. I would estimate that in three hours of lecture time I penned somewhere close to four or five thousand words. It has been a long time since I wrote in longhand and not via the computer but right now, before I type it in later, I'm really pleased with what I got down. And this was a chapter in that pesky fifteen year old girls POV that normally comes very slow for me.
So maybe in the future I'll write her out by hand instead of keyboard and see if that helps.
How many of you write by longhand? Just curious.
