    Default Handwriting tips

    Here is a sample of my writing using VAC 700 XF with Diamine Jet-black. Any tips provided would be helpful.

    What an insightful article! I love the concept of learning to enjoy the in between moments. We all need help with that.

    Manny, I really like that guy's writing.

    TarBlue, my handwriting improved the most when I studied the shapes that make up all the letters (there are only a dozen or thereabouts,) decided how I wanted mine to look and then paid attention to them individually, one at a time as I was writing.

    good luck!

    When in college I found I could print faster and neater than I could write cursive under the pressure of taking notes in an electrical engineering curriculum. That field develops so fast, much of the class information came from the black board so good notes were essential . So, I have printed since. It is easier to read and for me easier, faster and neater to write. You just have to develop a printing system and size that works for you. Doesn't mean it can't be elegant if you wish it to be. As a personal opinion I just don't have any use for cursive writing.
