Word of the Day
Friday, March 30, 2007
Calligraphy (noun) – the art of fine handwriting/penmanship (from Greek kalligraphia); Megan Kissinger does amazing, gorgeous, beautiful calligraphy work

Word in a Sentence: In my novel Choices Meant for Gods, Amanda Chariss has fine penmanship because Hrazon and others have taught her to read and write over the years, but she has no need in the first book of the trilogy to write anything in so fancy a style as calligraphy.

Your turn! Do you have any fanciful and lovely sentences to dazzle me with today?

I can barely write in plain style cursive that is legible much less trying to use something like calligraphy! I can feel the writer's cramp that would evolve from any attempts at that starting in my fingers and wrist now.

Jeni,
People who can do calligraphy amaze me. (and I'm really keen on the pens...) You'll have to practice your signature in fancy cursive, though, so you can do it without writer's cramp when you're rich & famous.
