Editor’s Blog: Am I Write?

I recently heard that they’re no longer teaching cursive writing in school. So not only has all this typing and texting ruined my handwriting, it’s destroying the future of the written word.

But I have hope. Maybe all those images of a teen Carrie Bradshaw on “The Carrie Diaries” writing in her journal by her window will inspire some others to do the same. Here, stylish notebooks for those who still put pen to paper.
