    I Had Bad Handwriting and It Improved

     I had very bad handwriting in school. This was in the days before computers and I had to handwrite a term paper. The english composition teacher said in the middle of the class I had handwriting like I spilled ink on the page and a chicken walked all over it. I was so...

    I was taught cursive in second grade, I believe. After we'd mastered the art, all of our compositions had to be performed in it. What kind of composition does a second-grader write? Anyway, I was never very good at it; I would always forget the proper cursive for certain letters...

    I've always been told that I have decent handwriting - for a lefty. Does that mean that in general, lefties have worse handwriting, or is that just assumed? My handwriting is sort of big and loopy, with random flicks on random letters. But I've noticed a lot of people I know have...

    No one understands my handwriting, but me of course. If I try hard I can write nicely and you can understand it, even if some letters will still look weird. I get lots of complaints at my handwriting, lol.

    I Have Horrible Handwriting

    My handwriting's so bad, most of my school essays have to be typed. But then again, you know what they say about bad handwriting and intelligence. So...maybe I'll just keep my scribble and become a doctor instead.

    It's Unique

    I'm ambidextrous, but some things I've always preferred to do with specific hands.  All through school, I (almost) always wrote with my right.Well, now my right hand is kind of effed up, and most of the time I lack the dexterity to manipulate a pen.  So, okay.  No big deal...

    Bad Bad Bad

    My handwriting is so bad that the office calls me all the time and asks me to translate what I have written.  They also call and thank me when I type instead of write.  Its so bad that sometime I can read it myself.

    Yes Please

    I used to like my handwriting.  I remember working really hard to make it really nice cursive "joined up" writing, even getting compliments on it. I don't know, all this typing has destroyed my penmanship.  It is more of a scrawl than anything now.  Still joined up, but not...

    Terrible Scrawl, Just For You.

    In these days where email is rapidly superceding even the printed letter, handwriting is an ever more personal way of communicating with someone. But it helps if one has more to choose from tiny little immature printing or illegible scrawl. I have always had pretty rotten...

    I Need To Improve My Handwriting

    I am ambidextrous.  I can write with either hand.  I write mostly with my right hand because it's quicker but not as neat as my left hand writing.  I need to improve my writing with my right hand  or else learn to write faster with my left hand.
