South Paw

Even though it comes with smudgy pen marks, useless scissors and an early death (statistically speaking :)) I love being left-handed!

Any lefties passing by? Anyone living with a lefty?

Keep kicking ass!


  1. My daughter is a lefty and one of my favorite people in the world. She only writes with her left. Everything else (holding a bat, guitar, etc.) is right. Lefty's rock!

  2. I loved to watch my dad write. It was fascinating to see how his hand curved inward as he looped his letters together.

  3. @Beth - Yay lefties! And the righties (and writies :)) who raise them!

    @Ruth - That's such a lovely image :)

    @Allison - Tell me about it!! I especially love "how can you write like that?"

  4. Hey Jolene ~~ I'm popping in from the A~Z Challenge . Loved the graph !! I know a few lefties ... my late dad was one of them ...
    Enjoy the rest of A~Z !


  5. i love it too. :) visiting via the a to z challenge!

  6. My father was a lefty. Surprises me that everybody says something so banal, but maybe it shouldn't.

    My favorite fictional lefty would have to be Eric Chant of the Diana Wynne Jones Chrestomanci books.

    I'm starting up a 'Critiquing and Supportive Crusaders' program, where participants in the Second Crusade can find other writers to exchange critiques with or form supportive critiquing circles. If you're interested, come by The Kelworth Files to check it out!

  7. @MISH - Nice to see you :) I love it, too!

    @g-girl - Hey, fellow lefty! Thanks for visiting :)

    @kelworthfiles - Lots of lefty Dads in the blogosphere! (I have one, too :)) Ooh, and I soooo love that you have a favorite fictional lefty!!! The critique circles are a great idea - you're going to get an awesome response :)

  8. My husband and one of my best friends are both lefties. We have to be careful about seating when we go to restaurants, or else we're always bumping elbows. Secretly, I've always wished I was a lefty.

  9. @Lisa - Sooo true! No wonder lefties die sooner - constant hazards!! (And I say, with a left handed husband and best friend? Consider yourself an honorary lefty!)
