Nice day writing at Drisha. "Writing at Drisha" usually means helping out one or two people with the odd thing - quill-cutting and so on - and a chunk of hardcore book-larnin with hardcore book-larnin-type student - as well as my own writing.

My writing's coming along nicely - having nice klaf makes SUCH a difference. Take a pen, if you will, and write on some paper. Now write on some sandpaper. Nasty, isn't it? And plays hell with your nib. This is the difference between good klaf and bad klaf with quills. Good klaf makes for a happy soferet.

Squee moment of the day: JW has been working away every single Tuesday this year most diligently, making rows and rows of letters, the sort of hard work that most people skip cos it's boring (like scales for musicians. You really ought to). And she was saying how she'd gone to do a piece of artwork and just found letters pouring out of her pen all fluent and easy, in a CRUMBS I DIDN'T KNOW I COULD DO THAT sort of way. Yay. I do love when my students notice themselves making strides.
