When I was a little kid, my parents urged me to write clean and beautifully,they said that a beautiful hand writing would leave others a better impression and show that you have received a good education.However,since computers and typists became widely used, people tend to write less and less and no more attention are paid to hand writing as it used to.Have you ever paid attention to your hand writing?Is it beautiful?Are you going to improve it?

I think it's safe to say that my handwriting is fair but i can't help but disagree with you on your saying. I know someone who has a very beautiful handwriting but is an actual, living, breathing @ss. He's way too arrogant that he always gets into a fight where ever he goes.

I didn't say that the one who writes beautifully must be a good guy,what I mean, and it is not my opinion but my parents' actually,is that a good hand writing may leave a good impression on others,even if it is not true.

I do think that I have a nice handwriting. I can't really complain. I have had comments from people who thought that I have a nice handwriting, which is nice to hear. I like my handwriting.

I just have an average handwriting, but now that I am always exposed to computers it became very unpleasant now. Sometimes my hands would tremble as I write. That's probably because my hands are not so used to writing anymore.

my handwriting is average... not beautiful, but not ugly as well... but you are right... with the invention of the computer, people are becoming lazier and lazier to write and as a result our handwriting is becoming uglier and uglier... i always pay attention to my handwriting and make sure that i write beautifully... take care and have a nice day...

it depends on the nature of people, if the nature of people is good then the hand writing must be good. my hand writing is good but do you have that goodness????????????????

Writing and contents which is more important - Contents is more important rather than soley on writing style.
My hardwriting is normal and little childish also.PErsonally i think the hardwriting pretty or beautifully does not mean receive good education , better impression and such.U can see various famous people hardwriting and some of them are damn ugly and hard to read , even doctors hardwriting are horrible but they are higly educated.What is important is how u write it and wat the meaning rather than the writing pretty or not.

I have paid attention to my hand writing but no matter how i try i cant get it to seem any better. my hand writing does not look good. i notice that most girls hand writing is better than boys and i always wonder why that must be. Why cant i get my handwriting to look proper. No matter how slow i even try to write that doesn't make things bettera, sometimes it only make things worst. how do you people do it?

well when I was a kid I got really worried about my handwriting cos it was so terrible. such was it my mom would tease me saying it looked like asking a hen to write with its legs. now, it's good that computers are now making it easier for me and now i worry less about how bad it looks. i believe it's a good development.

It depends. If I am on a lesson and trying to make some notes fast, my handwriting looks often very bad. However, if I have enough time and there is no pressure, I can write quite properly, so the other people will be able to read it too. I have a friend who is terribly bad at handwriting, he writes so bad that only he can understand, what has he put on paper.

I have never been blessed with beautiful handwriting. I am one of those people they invented the typeriter and computer for. My handwriting leaves a lot to be desired. I think i just get in too much of a hurry to take the time to write nicely.

LOL, mine isn't consistent at all. Sometimes when I'm in a rush to take down notes, it'll be messy and I scribble it. But when I'm serious as in when I'm studying and taking down notes, I'll really write it neatly. In the past when I was young, my handwriting was quite nice until when I reached high school, the standard was quite poor as I was scribbling all the way, LOL. I agree, as technology advances, we have the computers at home and naturally, we'll prefer to type rather than take the effort to type. Typing is convenient, but writing, I feel that it'll improve our blood flow in our hand? Perhaps.

Usually I don't have beautiful handwriting, but when I write slowly, I can mae it beautiful. But I can't afford to write slowly because I have to take down noted fast in school. I don't think handwriting is that important as long as it's legible- it doesn't really say if you have had better education or not..

In high school, you know that you have a good handwriting when the teacher asks you to write the lessons on the board. I know I have a good one because my teachers then would always ask me to do those task which I enjoyed. There's nothing to improve on because after school we don't do much writing anymore. Lately, when I do list down things I notice that I no longer write carefully and it seems I am the only one who can read it. Haha.

yes, you are correct. since the use of computers more often, then we will be more seldom write, but i realized if good writing can get if frequently practiced.

I wouldn't call it "beautiful" but the capital letters are from a design I learned while learning calligraphy, which is basically writing art. The original template had roses in all the letters, and I left them out, but all the swirls are there. Come to think of it, that is only my signature. For regular writing I use none of the frills, I just let my letters go. Sometimes I write too fast, but that is only when I am thinking and it doesn't matter if anyone can read it or not - even myself!
