Writing cramp

Have you ever been swimming …

And got a charlie horse?

A similar cramp happens …

When you write too much with a pencil or pen.

But don’t worry, you’re not going to drown. It’s actually a good sign that your stretching your writing muscles and getting into pensmanshape. A lot like becoming good at anything, it doesn’t happen overnight. You’ve gotta keep at it, fight through it, and shake off the writing cramps.

The reward?

Well, I don’t want to spoil the surprise. But trust me when I say that that writing by hand is an art that, the more you do it, the more it bestows its many rewards. So do you best and keep at it and keep writing through those “hand shaking” cramps.

Shake it off, as I like to say.

Or actually, not say – I meant write!
