>2016 and writing by hand
here's my handwriting bro
In third grade they made us learn cursive, but never penalized us for writing in print so nobody used it.
Used to write in print exclusively until I became dissatisfied with how some of my letters looked and experimented with swashes, angles and capitals. Started by swashing the y-tail. G tail followed. Positioned the page at a more comfortable angle than stick-straight vertical. Experimented with connecting letters. Experimented with fountain pens.
My progress was so slow that you might call it subconscious transition more than practice, but make no mistake, it was deliberate. You MUST practice or your writing WILL stay gross.
Remember to make it aesthetic.
I've had shit handwriting my entire life and never bothered to fix it.
More of my fine work
is there some function i dont know about?
oh, I should clarify that my short-form word processor is iwork pages, not ms word, which I prefer for a lot of reasons that I won't go into
Any tips on writing with the non-dominant hand? I have rheumatoid arthritis mostly affecting my right, and I'd like to get some practice with my left as a sort of back-up. For how long should I practice daily?
I like your Fs and Ts. Very strange Zs, though. That is supposed to say ''lazy'' dog, right?
Well, I'm male, if that's enough to shortcut your question. Although someone did recently ask me if I ''wanted sum fuk'' in a Goodreads thread.
Yep. I even went for a ص to make it a bit harder. I think the س would've been more appropriate.
The English "s" is ambiguous enough that it doesn't matter too much whether you use "saad" or "seen", but I agree, "seen" is less 'throaty' or 'chesty' (for want of more descriptive/accurate terms) than "saad", and thus, perhaps the more accurate choice
Yeah it's a very lazy Z. Pic related shows a more fancy Z
My writing is beginning to connect with my visual sensibilities. This is an attempt to organize colour palettes by era.
Spengler is also complicating my note taking.
>failed to display the characteristics of the writer i'm trying to rip off
you mean successfully departed from my influences rather than just writing pure pastiche?
Typical /lit/. I should have known better.
I have had many typewriters in the past, including that model. Manual typewriters are shit for writing. They have literally 0 advantage over other media. Currently, I use an electric typewriter and my computer to do almost all of my writing. Manual typewriters are physically difficult to use, and force you to write much less quickly than you would be able to otherwise.
>inb4 writing slow is good because it makes you think more about it
why are you thinking so slow?
the only upside of using a manual typewriter for writing is hipster-y aesthetic and fake nostalgia
There are standard ways to form characters. As in where to start and end a stroke. Study them.
There are many styles of cursive. They are mostly the same but there are some characters that will be formed differently and have a slightly different look
If I have to write only a few sentences it's better. Anything past that and it morphs into this (my ~true~ handwriting)
I was saying your writing reminded me of a bad attempt at ripping off knausgaard. It did not reach a level of style that would make me think of Proust, even though Knausgaard writes in the tradition of Proust. Like if I ate a piece of rotten hamburger meat I might think it came from McDonald's rather than Ruth's Chris.
It's not that I think my writing is so great, but based on this post I'm going to go ahead and assume that, just as you used this weedy logic to retroactively make your bad argument seem like a clever gesture, you're criticizing me so furvently because your anguish at how terrible your own writing is driving you to really believe that it is warranted.
from what i remember, the curriculum only relatively recently changed handwriting to that pic, it used to be far more slanted and long etc. you should all go and ask to see your grandparent's handwriting sometime, you might be pretty surprised how great htey are at it
You fucking post here every time there is an opportunity to show off your gay ass handwriting, you showed us months ago
>hey guys look at me I'm so cool I spend all my time handwriting shit down man I'm neat and so deep I leave my diary in vulnerable positions in my living room so people will look at my handwriting and think I'm neat and I take my notebooks in public for other people to admire and so I can show off how smart I am.
Not native english speaker here, I've not been taught how to write cursive in school, just tried to copy others' handwriting. Also, I write with my right hand, but use my left for everything else.
I'm not a fan of that pic, though there are some letter forms that are nicer than say, the palmer method, which is what your grandparents style probably was
I've also experimented with sutterlin script, though its pretty much impossible to read after you forget what you've written
