Get ready for the September #RockYourHandwriting Challenge

Welcome to September’s #RockYourHandwriting Challenge! We love that there are so many other folks who wanted a reason to set aside time every day to practice their handwriting.  Between this and practicing my calligraphy and lettering, my cursive has actually improved – which was a little surprising to me!  Hopefully you have seen improvement as well, if you’re returning!

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


PROMPTS. There are 30 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, @decadethirty, @tinyrayofsunshine, and @boho.berry for another month of practicing your Handwriting!


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!
