what can you say of your handwriting

I sometimes wish my handwriting could have been more beautiful like my mother’s . My father said he doesn’t like the way I write my Os and As because they seem the same. However, some people would say they like my handwriting. They said it is neat and I write legibly. I do consider it that too, but I just wonder why my father said otherwise. Can you say your handwriting is nice too?

My penmanship sucks right now. I remember the term my mom would call it, chicken scratch. I have different penmanship over the years specially when I was young and tend to imitate my classmate's penmanship. I really can write neatly if I want to, but I guess my penmanship now reflects the kind of life I have. Always on the go. That's why it looks like all the letters are not in place because I just can't wait to be done with it. My dad's handwriting is the most unique I've seen. Remember in the old days when they write with a brush and an ink? That's how he do it and he does brush scripts with all the matching decorations on it. It's pretty cool I realize now, but that time for me it was just so ordinary.

Well, as long as what you write can be legibly read it's okay. But then it still nice to have a nice penmanship, don't you think so? I was flattered when my daughter when she was in high school would try to copy the way i write. It means she finds my penmanship nice.

I used to do that too with my classmates when I was young. I try to imitate their handwriting because it was really nice. So I often change my writing styles then. I am sure your daughter looks up to you far beyond your nice penmanship.

Well, i am kinda flattered by her doing that. But i told her to change her signature which looks just like mine. Now that she's grown, she has indeed came up with her own. Well, in some ways she has grown like me. One, she's also prayerful too.

Except when I am tired, I think I have good penmanship. So good that my notebooks in school have been photocopied by classmates for their own reviews. Although it was good to have that compliment, it wasn't always good for me as I get so busy making my handwriting neat. And every effort I focus on my writing means I take away from listening to the professors.

During my school days, i would scribble fast to take note of what the teacher says. At night, i would rewrite them while mentally keeping them in my mind. That way, i get to study.

Well, perhaps different people have different views on the others' handwriting. That's maybe why your father doesn't like the way you write. Don't worry about that, just enjoy your own handwriting and that's enough. Frankly, I can't write quite beautiful words, but still I love my handwriting. They are the creations of my own hand and show what I am. Although most of the time I use the keyboard to type words, time and time again, I still will try to write something on hand.

It's good to hear you love your handwriting. I do love my handwriting, though i like most specially to doodle on my signature. Father , nowadays don't see any of my handwriting. I now give him a present not a birthday card when his birthday comes. Though, i would write some greetings it would be in Print like manner.

Sometimes, we seem not to notice if our own handwriting is nice . It will be others telling us so , that would make our self believe.

I've been told by a lot of people that I have a very nice handwriting. They even play discrimination and tell me that it looks like the handwriting of a girl. Well, a compliment is a compliment and I'm flattered to hear them when they take notice of my handwriting. But I print what I write. I can't do long-hand. I mean, I know how to but you'd think I'm a completely different person if you compare my long-hand with my print.

It's rare that among men to have nice penmanship. You are one of those few ones who have nice handwriting. Congratulations ! Keep it up !

Just continue to practice your handwriting and maybe adapt some new styles. I did that before, because i like to make them smaller. So, by constant practice, i was able to make them smaller, neat and nice looking.
