100 Word Challenge: Practice

A while back my Mister gifted me with a new iPad. I had asked for one so I could read ebooks, and hopefully cut back on buying hardback books. I was running out of room and money.

When I got it, I honestly thought that was all I’d use it for – reading. But, I’ve been using it more than even my laptop. I was very surprised once I realized that.

I’ve been using it instead of the laptop to make story notes. If I have an idea or see something interesting, I can quickly type it in. Well, maybe “quickly,” isn’t the word. Perhaps “conveniently” is better. I’ve always preferred writing long hand then transcribing it into a document. Still, using my tablet has been easier than getting out my laptop or even keeping pen and paper handy.

Then I discovered the Apple pencil. It was like the heavens opened and the angels sang. Hyperbole, yes, but spectacular also yes.

Now, I can open a notes app and write whatever I want. I can even erase and highlight.

The only draw back it that I need to work on my cursive. Like my southern accent not translating well from voice to text, my handwriting is equally difficult to decipher. Apparently my writing could substitute for lorem Ipsum and makes no sense when I return to it later.

What good is writing notes when I can’t even read my own writing. I have some letters practice in my future.

“My spelling is Wobbly. It’s good spelling but it Wobbles, and the letters get in the wrong places.” – A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

This week’s word is:


What to do:

Using “practice” for inspiration, write 100 Words – 100 exactly – no more, no less. You can either use the word – or any form of the word – as one of your 100, or it can be implied. Include a link in your post back here, and add your story to the Mister Linky list. If you don’t have a blog, you can leave your submission in the comment section, or as a Facebook status post. Remember to keep spreading the love with supportive comments for your fellow Wordsters.
