Ever had to write a fortune?
I’m working on a crochet project – a bowl of fortune cookies.
The pattern I’m following stitches them closed and embroiders a smiley face on the outside but I chose to include actual fortunes inside my cookies.
Writing challenge! I knew I wouldn’t have a lot of space or flexibility for presentation of the messages, so brevity was key. I also had to make some style decisions.
Font. Punctuation. Language.
Next, because I was using iron-on transfer paper I needed to print the text backwards. I created mirror text in Word and did a few test prints.
You can’t turn tech writing off, no matter the project.
