I learned it, but I am a 4th-grade dropout and have since forgotten how to write it.
>>
>>7570734

>>7570668 here

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.

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

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.

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

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.
