May Rock Your Handwriting Challenge

Since the first #RockYourHandwriting challenge, we’ve seen over 21,000 shares on Instagram since March. WHO KNEW so many of you wanted to work on your handwriting? I hope you saw some progress or other benefits to having time set aside to practice day to day. It’s truly a fun way to put some time aside to do something for yourself.

Won’t you join me, Dee Quine (@DecadeThirty), Kim (@TinyRayofSunshine), and Kara (@Boho.Berry) as we practice our handwriting?  If so, welcome to the #RockYourHandwriting challenge!


  1. Spread the word – the more the merrier with this Instagram challenge, so repost the image below, tag a friend, and use the hashtag #RockYourHandwriting and the other hashtags you usually use.  If you are so inspired, we are also on Facebook! Join us there if you aren’t on IG, or just want a forum to share your work with other.
  2. You don’t need anything fancy for gear – some people do these challenges right in their planner, others dedicate a separate planner or notebook for them.  I have been doing them in my Rhodia notebook or on scraps of Rhodia grid paper.  I’ve used a dozen different kinds of pens as well as pointed pen calligraphy for my own posts.
  3. There are 31 prompts, one for every day – there are a mix of drills, writing prompts, and applications. If it’s a drill, practice writing the words for a page or so – working on consistency.  If it’s a prompt, for example “quote of the day,” then you’d write down whatever quote you want, working on intentionality.  Other things are applications – which means if it’s “Thank you note,” for example, then you’re practicing handwriting doing a familiar task in a new way.  Simply take a photo of your work and share on Instagram with the hashtags.
  4. Take a peek through the hashtag and engage with others in the challenge – like, comment, encourage, and offer feedback.  Most of the joy is doing this in community rather than by ourselves.
  5. Join us when you can, on days you can! Its never too late. It’s an invitation not an expectation – it’s supposed to be a fun way we can all work on our handwriting together, so even if you miss a few days (we all do) just jump back in!

Join @prettyprintsandpaper, @decadethirty, @tinyrayofsunshine, and @boho.berry to work on your handwriting this May! //

I’m excited – I hope you join us, and good luck!
