Day 1:

This is so hard for me. I am very eager to learn calligraphy, and yet already feel overwhelmed and discouraged. I've never done anything like this before, but I'm determined to figure it out. I have this perpetual sense of being an artistic, creative person inside, always unable to get it out. Perhaps that's because I'm not too good at the most important and hardest part - practice. One thing I'm struggling with is that I hold pencils/pens differently than suggested by Molly, and so I find it extremely unnatural and strange to hold the calligraphy pen the way she suggests. I try to hold it my normal way, but with the 45 degree angle, but it keeps catching on the paper. I don't know if it's because of me or the supplies I'm using. I'm in Ecuador so I didn't have access to the same nibs, though I am using ones that look very similar and the same ink. Sigh. Need to keep trucking along.
