    True. All skills must be practiced, or they degrade.
    I agree. If you practice your handwriting every day and keep it flowing along at the same angle then it will start to become second nature. Keeping lines of letters at the same height and slant angle is the hardest part to master but you will eventually get used to doing it that way by practice. I find it slow at the start but then it can get a bit quicker. The letter "r" is always the hardest for me. I just can't make them all exactly the same especially when they are at the end of a word.

    I am grateful for my years in Catholic school, where you got a good foundation in cursive, whether you wanted it or not, but it really is all about practice. I can remember the penmanship books and paper, and I look at old samples of my childhood handwriting...I always put my name in my books, and still have some of those books, so it’s interesting to see how I wrote over the years....but I learned over years, not in a few months.

    Some tips I can give would be to look at handwriting samples online, Pinterest has many, and to use a pen that isn’t too heavy, with a nib that is on the wetter side. Paper made for kids learning penmanship is helpful, if not that, then graph paper. Start with single letters, move on to connecting letters. And most importantly, make it a pleasurable experience. Use good paper that you enjoy writing on, don’t save the good paper for when your writing is “better”....use a pen that and ink that you love. The better your supplies perform, the more inspired you will be to keep going.

    I do this as a warmup exercise mostly with pencils and then with ink and pens.
    Writing skills is not something you should take as granted. It has more ability in improving ( CALLI GRAPHY= BEAUTIFUL WRITING ) when you look at is as a drawing skill.
