Because I do, straight up.
It's one of the reasons I don't hand-write anything (that and it's painful). Every once in awhile (a while? who the heck knows?!) my handwriting will come out all nice and pretty and girly. But mostly it's chicken scratch.
my handwriting looks like drunken cuneiform compared to this
This normally isn't an issue because, like I said, I don't hand-write.
But I do hand edit. Both my stuff and other's stuff. When I know I'm going to edit someone else's stuff I try to write carefully. But when it's my stuff there are plenty of times where I write something (and I'm sure it's something genius and fantastic) and then later, when I go look at it, I have no idea what it says.
Luckily I have a good memory, so even if I can't read my comment I can usually re-read the section and come to the same conclusion. The chicken scratch itself serves as a memory marker for me.
Anyone else have this problem? What's your solution (besides just writing more carefully. Because who wants to do that?)
