Improving handwriting - Page 4

post #46 of 58
If my handwriting was more legible, people next to me in meetings would too easily read the sardonic comments I am writing about their outfits.

I just wrote in the book but I made copies of the practice pages they provide as well...for later use.

Completely agree. I haven't worked at it in a while and I can see my writing getting worse.

Perhaps I'll take a course in English as well. It appears I have no clue on which right is used when. Am I write? LOL!

Ha! Hadn't noticed it! But with a bit of poetic license it still makes sense. Write right!

Everyone always calls me out for writing very neat, and I suppose that's true, I'm also ambidextrous, left isn't as good as right because that was more "encouraged" in primary school so my right hand has had more practise, I write terribly small do, If I go for a fountain pen the entire paper will end up being one giant blob of ink so I always use an 0,5mm HB mechanical pencil.

These are some notes from a class, this is my "big quick and dirty font":

Don't know how it came together, used to hate it when I was younger, didn't think it was cool, I wanted to write with loose letters big letters like all the older kids but luckily failed terribly at that and kept at it.

Lecture today was a slow Monday morning one, the slower I write the smaller my 'font' gets, If I write any slower it will just be a line I guess. wink.gif

I've finally just purchased the book. Will probably take weeks to arrive in Germany. Will report back.

Pretty helpful site.

Laurens, you have beautiful penmanship!

 

If you want to improve your cursive for free, just buy some tracing paper and print off some basic calligraphy/cursive that you admire from the internet. Trace over it until your muscle memory starts to kick in!

Anyone under 30-ish will probably agree that it isn't the easiest thing to read.

 

Funny story about cursive...My 6th grade English teacher made us write every single assignment we did in cursive. Her exact words were, "All your teachers in high school and all your professors in college will require you to write in cursive, so I will require it as well." Once I was done with 6th grade, I never wrote another thing in cursive (signature aside, obviously).
