do you have a good penmanship?

I write using bold letters. They say, my handwriting is like those of an architect or engineer. But I am not. In fact, I am into line of medicine. I just improved my handwriting when I was still in school. I seldom write using small letters. I am not used to it. Do you have a good penmanship? Or just good enough to be read by everyone? lol

I guess my penmanship is just good enough to be read by most people. I can only print, not write in cursive. I mostly just type whenever I can. I can type on either a Qwerty or Dvorak keyboard, yet cursive eludes me. But I have been typing since the age of 6 and once I really learned how to type, I loved typing.

On a good day when I know what I'm typing about and don't have to think up an spellings, I can type at 135 words per minute. On average, I usually just type around 90 or so.

When I was still studying most of my friends would come to my, as they want me to write them love letters for their crushes. Because of my talent in hand-writing, I was also able to copy other penmanships and signatures. My handwriting depends on the penmanship of the person I'm copying, that's why when you'd check my notes they don't are different from one another.

It is said that there is no good or bad penmanship, only readable and ureadable ones. But to answer your question, I could say that i have a very pretty penmanship as a lot women tries to make their penmanship to be. However, I also read somewhere that those people who write in bold letters are the 'intellectual' type. I guess you are one since you are into medicine. It is also rare to find a readable penmanship of doctors.

To be honest, I want to learn pretty penmanship like yours.

I have a penmanship that is good enough to be read. I was influenced by my drawing teacher in my young high school years. But I have not developed it to be such as yours!

As long as it is readable it's okay. :) I saw some handwritings that I can't really read.

I quit writing cursive because I couldn't read it. I went back to printing and it has evolved to a near cursive style, that is at least mostly legiable. The funny thing is I had a boss that had a nearly identical handwriting, I couldn't always tell his & mine apart.

Not really. I once took a note to him and said "I don't remember writing this." Another time, I left him a note and he worried about it for over an hour before he remembered our handwritings were the same! LOL! My handwriting was begining to look like my dad's, who, when he retired, they joked he was going to the Texas Medical Center and teach penmanship (meaning that he was going to teach them to write illegably.)

In the old days I used to write with the old fashioned english cursive. Then about half way through my teaching career, I was forced to swap to the new modern cursive, as this is what I had to teach. I found the modern cursive very good for me, as it enabled me to write more quickly & stay neat.

Hi. I am lucia1. When I was a young girl in the third or fourth grade, my step-Dad always checked my homework. I was learning cursive handwriting. After a few days of practicing my letters and showing him my practice writing, he said "your penmanship is really bad". I can remember starting to cry. He made me practice one letter, one hour a night, after homework. I was mad at him for the longest time. Then when I was in high school he read a story I wrote for a class in school. He said, "look at what good penmanship you have, you have beautiful handwriting". I felt bad for being mad, and thanked him ever since then.

My handwriting is pretty good as long as I write in cursive. I write kind-of small for most people's taste though. I do get a little sloppy with it when I try to write fast, but as long as I write at a normal pace, I do pretty good. I run into some trouble when I try to print, though. I have trouble reading my own writing some times when I print something and try to go back and read it later. I guess I should try to work on that...

oh.. so architects and engineers write in bold letters? ^__^;; my handwriting is small. and usually i write in print and not cursive. i didn't like my cursive handwriting when i was in high school so i started to write in print. and i usually use capital letters. ^__^ i think my handwriting is pretty readable because when i was in college a lot of classmates borrow my notes and photocopy it. but recently, one of my penpals said she couldn't understand some of the words in my letter because i write so small. ^__^;;

They say my penmanship is nice but it's too small so my handwriting is not suited for blackboard/whiteboard.Only for notebooks.
