Hello Anny and Everyone!
It is my hope that we can write and publish new SignWriting  
Literature in 2007.

The Video Transcription lessons on the SW List could help us prepare  
some new literature for publication...So it would help us in two  
ways..provide instruction and give us a partly finished document ;-)

To do this we must have participants...So you are the first, Anny, to  
express interest. February is fine with me. What about February 5th -  
19th for a short video transcription course?

Any others want to learn to transcribe a video in February on the SW  
List? need at least three people...

Thank you for your positive response, Anny!

Val ;-)

PS. I also realize there is a request for a Handwriting course...we  
could do a two-week course in Handwriting starting Monday, January  
8th - Monday, January 22nd. Anyone game? need at least three people  
willing to participate with me...I will give you a sentence written  
in SignWriting by computer and we will learn to write that same  
sentence by hand...and I will show you the techniques I would use to  
write it plus create a chart of handwritten symbols for you on the  
web...if we don't do it in January, we could do it in  
course a month is plenty for all of us!
