It always helps to have a scribe who is also a computer whiz! Aviva Yael - the most recent member to join the group - has created wonderful step-by-step guides for each letter and graphed practice paper that matches the size of our klaf. She emailed copies to each of us - I will attach them to the blog as soon as she shows me how to do that :)
Meanwhile, we have been proceeding with weekly classes with Rabbi Fasman. Tomorrow night we will complete the aleph-bet. Among the last four letters will be that magical "peh" with the secret "bet" embedded inside.
Then it will be practice practice practice, after which we will reconvene in a few weeks for Rabbi Fasman to check our writing and instruct us on other Megillah-writing matters, like margins, sewing the klaf, etc.
