Handwriting Tips

Back in the last millennium I, like my peers were forced to learn “cursive script” at school and I notice that it still is being taught today by the Victorian Education Dept. Now with a name like “cursive” there is a really obvious joke and if you have every seen my handwriting you would have been on the end of it, and probably are still cursing. With my writing I should have been a doctor although with my squeamishness about blood, it probably all worked out for the best. Computers don’t bleed…. yet. Still all is not lost. For the chirographically challenged (my hands up) there is site full of “Tips for improving your handwriting”.

I quote from the hype…
“You’ve decided you want to improve your handwriting and you’re probably hoping a fountain pen will do the trick — maybe a friend told you it would. Maybe you’re just adventurous and you want to try your hand at calligraphy (or you might, once your handwriting improves). Good for you!

A fountain pen may make your writing look a bit better, but if your writing looks as if frenzied chickens got loose on the page, chances are this won’t be enough. Most likely, you will need to retrain your arm and hand.”

I have promised my self that I will try and act on my newfound knowledge. Now if only the they would invent the “Schaeffer Spell Checker Fountain Pen” for the terminally vague at spelling. {sigh}
