Learn Cursive with Lunatic Engine – Lesson 07 –


there is no mortar
without pestle

How may times have you written the word “Executrix” or any word with the suffix “-ix”? For a few drafts, this poem was little more than these two lines. The final version did end up exploring this a bit further but as I look at this image now, I’m wondering if that was the correct choice. And which am I today? Mortar, or pestle?

Yes, this is another Pilot Prera paired with another Pilot Iroshizuku ink. Perfectly matched pen and colour. I could write with these until the end of the world and consider it a life well-spent. Look at the way the late afternoon early spring sun comes through.

About Learn Cursive with Lunatic Engine. Each week, until my first book of poetry launches in April 2020, I am going to complete a cursive worksheet featuring lines from the poems in the book with notes on which tool I used. I will post the blank sheets as pdf’s below and here on the full explanation page for you to download, print and complete.

A new lesson with new lines will be added to the complete document so that by the time the book comes out, you’ll have not only had a chance to read a couple of lines from each poem, but you’ll have written them yourself.

So there you have it: Learn Cursive, with lines from Lunatic Engine.
