My Handwriting is Atrocious
April 15, 2017 7:45am CST
I've noticed that my handwriting is getting worse and worse. Is it because I hardly do any serious writing anymore and most everything is done on the computer or is it just part of aging? This week I was writing out some Easter cards to send to various relatives and friends I don't see very often and I realized that just trying to write a short little note on the card was almost illegible. My once beautiful penmanship is now looking more like scribble. I'm attributing it more to using the computer for my failing penmanship and not old age. My two aunts are in their 80's and still write beautifully. I guess I should practice my penmanship so that it doesn't look like a doctors chicken scratch How about you? is your handwriting legible?

I use to be just like you @Marilynda1225 . Beautiful, cursive writing. Now, doctors would be jealous. Talk about chicken-scratching; oh yeah. One things for sure though, frauds and scammers would never be able to duplicate it.
When I was young, my sisters would tell me i got the most terrible handwriting there is. So as i was getting older i tried to improve them. I write almost every single day in my journal and I think i'm still trying to improve my handwriting. Here's what it looks like.

Nope, I'm the same as you. My penmanship used to be so lovely and it's horrible now. The only time I really write is when I send thank you notes to people who buy from me on ebay, so I've been practicing to see if I can get better. And slowly my hand is beginning to form those letters a little better! And yes, I blame the internet for it all! lol

@Marilynda1225 One of my customers told me that one of the reasons she keeps buying from me is my thank you notes. I just don't like sending their item all alone with nothing else, and that came to mind. So between that and writing my rent check every month (they insist on a paper check), I'm trying to get my handwriting back. Just to say I did it! lol
