A Fan of Unconventional Thinking by Oonah V. Joslin

“I had terrible trouble as a child because I was ambidextrous and I kept swapping hands and writing backwards and even upside down. Couldn’t get the hang of pqbd69 and I thought that when you got to the end of a line it was logical to go down and back along the next line the other way when reading so I had a bit of bother in general. They called in a psychologist. [They found out] I was just BRAINY. Everyone has special needs. Everyone learns a different way. The process is as important as the goal — more-so sometimes.” (Oonah grew up to become a teacher of students with special needs. eds.)

Ulster born poet Oonah Joslin is Managing Editor of e-zine Every Day Poets. She is thrice winner (and subsequent judge) of Microhorror’s coveted Hallowe’en competition, and is currently working on a collection of short stories old and new to suit every taste.

  1. I really enjoyed this one. I’m also ambidextrous and had a similar penchant for writing in mirror image cursive as a kid. I would send long notes to my best friend that she would have to hold up to a mirror to read. It’s so exciting to find out there are others out there who had a similar fascination with words visually. Cheers to backward!
