DP Daily Prompts: Pens and Pencils

When was the last time you wrote something substantive–a letter, a story, a journal entry, etc.—by hand? Could you ever imagine to a pre–keyboard era?

Last time I used to write with my pen was yesterday, it so happens my brother is writing a book, after completing the first chapter he sent it to me to read and write my comments.

When I finished reading it the first time, I could not recall what I read, how will  I comment on something I could not remember.

When I was in college I was unable to concentrate, I tried to remedy the situation, by reading it two three times, I realized when I was reading  something my focus was  on something else, this was terrible,I told myself maybe if I write it down I’ll do better, see when I write I have to focus or else I won’t be able to write correctly.

So when brother dear gave me the task of reading and commenting,I knew I had to write it down first, then read what I wrote, sure enough I was able to comment on the chapter.

Writing by hand is great I get to practice my writing, make sure the i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed and m does not look like w and vice versa.

You might be amazed to know it took me two hours to write six pages both sides, my writing looked better as I continued writing. I don’t need spell check because I learned to spell correctly in school, thanks to the nuns who taught me!

So dear brother if you’d care to know I spent two hours writing your chapter one and then wrote my comment. 🙂

Writing Prompt: Burnt https://sabethville.wordpress.com/2014/01,31/365-days-jan31st-burnt/

My house was burnt yesterday. There were things I left behind. I wish I could take them with me. I know why I couldn’t . It was so sudden. I also had to get out fast. I couldn’t look for my clothes I just bought. I didn’t get a chance to wear them. My gorgeous shoes. My favorite dishes.

I can only sit and cry because I was unable to take them. The thought that I was safe with my family and my pets, brought me back to reality.

I can always start buying these things slowly. I should be grateful I am alive.

I have learned one lesson from this tragedy. I must not attach me with material things. After all when I pass on I won’t be taking anything with me but my deeds especially good ones.
