If you wanted to gather (in a permanent way) samples of handwriting what would you ask people to write? It seems to open ended to say "write anything" or "choose your favorite poem" but what?
A recipe? A passage from a book (what book?)? Just their signature? (too short, I think). I want to see something like an 8.5x11 sheet of paper mostly filled if the writing is largish but what should the words be. I wish I were religious; I'd say passages from the Bible. But I'm not. So that's out.
Comment if you have an idea...can't get this concept out of my brain at the moment.
Oh, and in general, thank you to everyone who ever comments here. You're all so nice! It always makes me smile to get a comment. Thanks!
