The writing’s on the wall for writing

Two things I can’t remember:

  • Just how many weeks and months I spent, as a child, learning handwriting.

  • When (beyond inscribing a simple signature and a date) I last needed that skill.



You’re missing out! I write on postits and whiteboards in creative workshops, on paper for diagrams and thinking, and to take notes in meetings where I’m still quicker on paper than typing.

Ah yes, well, there’s still nothing to beat paper or whiteboards for sketching diagrams, but I’m much faster at typing text… and that’s probably even true on an iPad keyboard…

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
