Good on her. I spent some time last weekend brushing up my Gregg, as well.

As left-handed collector and user of fountain pens I have found this the best in both handwriting and computer printing.

Is that a lower case c and l or a lower case d? Is that a capital S or the number 8? Is that a capital U and lower case r or a lower case w and i?


its not for source code geez

I still like to write a first draft of something in pen, if only because it will force me to:

1. slow down my thought process a bit, so my thoughts would be articulated one at a time and not ejaculated in a disjointed jumble
2. commit to finishing off a sentence the way I started it, rather than prematurely enter an endless cycle of handwaving, rewriting, and editing while I stare at a blank page
3. take at least one editing pass while I transcribe it into digital form

I gave up on cursive after I noticed that the smartest girl in class cranked out her essays in beautiful block print.

Then later I realized that cursive comes automatically if you simply print with fast fluid strokes while barely lifting your writing instrument from paper. So cursive can really be roughly stripped down to that technique coupled with a few delayed finishing touches to dot your 'i's and cross your 't's and 'x'es with a flourish.
