Thank you, Gervais. :mrgreen: Oh, of course it counts. These kind of show a bit of us, and it's creative and outside the box, and how is that not you? :wink: Gervais, I like your handwriting. It's kind of...lilting and a bit scattered, but rather ornately charming. And the way you sign your name is perfect, though I will ask, what is the design down in the right-hand corner?

Glad that people seem to like my handwriting. :mrgreen: Usually people say "It's...uh, pretty. What does it say?" :wink: The design was just something put there because there was still ink on the pen, and I didn't feel like wiping it off.

Years and years of practice with my own notes; I can read most anything. :wink: But yours is quite legible, in fact. And that's perfect, because the design & your explanation of it is just so "you" as well. Isn't it funny how not only our handwriting, of course, and choice of quote, but also the chosen paper and pen really reflect things? For pretty much all of us...

Lovely mac! You had to go for red and black I quite agree ;)
I'm really glad we went for Brick quotes for this, everyone is picking such great choices!

This is mine. I chose the Preface because it tells us exactly why 'Les Misérables' is still so relevant in the present day & age, almost 200 years after it was first published.

Again, I am flailing over how much I love the choice of quote. That was one I had considered too, so I'm so glad somebody went for it!

Your handwriting is lovely Courgette - it's like what I wish mine looked like! :D

Acalia, you are being way TOO kind!!! *hugs*

Do you seriously think my handwriting is really THAT good?? For the first time in my life, somebody has actually complimented my handwriting (of all things!). That is how my handwriting used to be in my exam papers, when I was literally scribbling down my answers!! :oops:

Btw, did I mention that I'm left-handed?

Thanks, Acaila and Zelle! Although I'd normally write a good deal more sloppily than that, to be honest.

Courgette, that is indeed a great choice. And I love your writing, too!

Yes, both of you have wonderful handwriting! And pff, Mac, yours isn't bad at all; it's beautiful. And I like your choice of quote as well, and again, the paper and pen. :wink: I am glad we went with Brick quotes. And Courgette, yes, I really do like your handwriting, in fact, if I could steal it and make it mine, I would. :wink:

Yes :D I do the little loops on a lot of my letters too, but yours is generally much neater than mine *hugs back*
