Gotta start somewhere

I should:

- Check the Vroman’s stationary store for materials, possible books, and pricing.

- Figure out how the hell I want my handwriting to look. I actually don’t want anything terribly ornate or flowery, but I do want something more striking.

This AskMeFi question sparked my interest:

Of the suggestions given, this stuck out the most to me:

While it’s not ornate or girly and it’s definitely striking, I’m still not sure it’s my “style” either. Some of the things on this page (about italic) seem closer to the feel I’m looking for:

One suggestion that appealed to me was simply using an italic pen. I’ll look for that and glance through some books next time I’m at Vroman’s or an art supply store. I’ll also check and see if they have any classes.
