So, I’m going to admit to something that I’m sure nearly every single one of us has done at some point or another, even if you’re not an aspiring writer (though, I’ll get to that in a moment), and say that I’ve been practicing my signature today. I didn’t do this for any reason in particular other than the fact that I was sitting at the table and I’d left out a pad of sticky notes next to me and was just randomly tempted.
And naturally I’ve gone ahead and included a photo of mine here.
As a writer and someone who hopes one day to have published a book, I definitely have ulterior motives behind practicing my signature other than the very typical signing of important documents (which is, ironically, one reason why I practiced when I was little). But the biggest thing is that I just want to have a consistent signature so that when I ever get around to actually finishing and publishing a book, I can have an autograph that looks nice and doesn’t change drastically from book to book.
Who knows if that’s even possible, haha.
My assumption here is that a lot of you guys have practiced writing your autograph. Whether it’s because you wanted to be an author when you were young or a movie star…or maybe you just wanted to have the signature you put on all the important documents look nice…I think there are very few of us who can honestly say we haven’t doodled our names across every inch of a piece of paper at one point or another.
So, at the risk of proving myself wrong, how about you? Have you practiced writing your signature? What was it for? Do you still practice? Let me know in the comments!
As always, happy reading! And for today, happy practicing!
