#RockYourHandwriting this July

Well friends I hope you saw some progress or other benefits to having time set aside to practice day to day last month. These daily challenges truly a fun way to put some time aside to do something for yourself, with prompts you don’t have to come up with on your own!

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!


PROMPTS. 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.

ENGAGE. Take a peek through the Instagram hashtag (#rockyourhandwriting) or the Facebook group 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.

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.

SUPPLIES? 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.  Some of my favorite things to use are featured here.

Join @prettyprintsandpaper, @tinyrayofsunshine, @decadethirty, and @boho.berry in another month of improving your everyday handwriting in this daily challenge!

INVITATION. 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!


I’m excited to see what you share – I hope you join us, and good luck!

  1. I’m excited to do this! Just the other day, I had a conversation with a close friend about writing letters. Real letters! The kind that come in the mail! I have tons of (Vintage, lol!) note cards piled up and it’s time to use them! I wish that I had found this group when it started. I will grab a journal out of my stash and start now! Yay!!!
