Do you think good handwriting is God's gift?

I have a terrible handwriting and it is highly illegible even if I try writing at a very slow speed. One of my friend has got a very good handwriting and he believes that good handwriting is a god's gift and cannot be attained even by practicing. I would love to have good handwriting and am ready to practice for getting it. Can we have improved handwriting by practicing?

I think handwriting is based on our concentration. It is not God gifted. My observation is that more concentrated people have good handwriting whereas people having less concentration cannot write very well. Their writings are illegible. This can be improved by practice. Start writing slowly, it will change after few months. Take care of lines, curves etc required for good hand writing. Be fully concentrated while writing anything. The mind should be with only subject. If you are writing anything and thinking other thing, this will make your writing illegible because you are not fully concentrated.

I feel so. Because not everyone can have that skill and may be one can improve one's handwriting to some extent by practicing it. But the real good handwriting is a god's gift. That is what every elder person says. My son's handwriting is average. But he can tell the details of the calender for past 50 years or future 50 years. You tell the date, he will tell the day and vice versa. It is called photo mirror effect of the mind and it is extra ordinary. So I consider it as extra ordinary and god's gift because by practicing it, once may not reach that great extent.

Of course your handwriting can improve with practise. I consider myself to have good handwriting-people often commment about it. When I was a kid, I loved reading and writing stories. I've always loved writing. Sometimes I'll just start writing nonsense, or my name and address, song lyrics-anything really because I have an urge to handwrite! I think it's definitely a dying art form as more kids are using computers these days. Handwriting and spelling are two things that the education system should be focusing on I think. To answer your question, I don't think handwriting is a gift from God-it's just practise! Practise makes perfect!

It's not really a gift, it's more something you can learn, you can actually go to school to perfect your handwriting if you want to.
