I come across people who have beautiful hand writing while others have ugly one. some of my friends can't write quickly in a better way. There are some who write fast but their hand writing is not good looking.

Should we use pencil or ball point for practice?

I suppose practice is the only way to improve handwriting. I had to have perfect handwriting due to being a teacher. I even had to take a course in college that focused on cursive writing. I got to opt out of the work due to already having perfect handwriting. That was a nice thing, for sure.

Yes it is true that practice makes a man perfect. Do you write with left hand or right one?

@studylove I write with my right hand. I was writing on anything I could find when I was a kid. I just loved making the writing perfect.

Practice would be the only way to improve our writing. People who writes a lot have the best writing. however, there are some people who has innate handwriting.

I believe I have a nice penmanship. When I was in grade school I enjoyed the cursive writing practice while my other classmates hated it. It's not just practice improved my handwriting but also because of my interest.

I think the only way to get good at it is to just keep practicing. I think a lot of people stop improving their handwriting as soon as they think it's readable. I wanted to learn calligraphy and I had to really practice. It's also important to have the correct writing tool.

You are right. We should be able to write fast and the writing should be readable. Do you write with pen or pencil?

@studylove With a pen. I have different writing pens and the ones I use for Calligraphy is different from the normal pens we use at work.

@rosedust82 That is a smart and practical approach. How much time do you dedicate daily for improving your hand writing?

I think it is related to hard practice. Personally, when I compare my level now to before, there is a big difference.

@shantalclay So you mean to say that we can even start with writing a few lines or some paragraphs daily to improve our hand writing.

With the increase of gadget usage these days, people do less and less writing by hand and may result to somewhat scrawly handwriting...

@studylove I don't really practice regularly but I do still write by hand often at work so I can still keep a pretty neat hand-writing.

@sishy7 I appreciate your efforts and the way you think. In today's digital age most of the people prefer to type rather than writing by pen. Do you carry with one hand writing style or you often change it?

If we practice with a pencil it will help to improve your handwriting

I also hope my son to improve his handwriting. Here we have some copybooks which you can write down the words on it. Although it can not totally change my son's ugly handwriting, but I must say at least it can be helpful a little. If my son can keep on practicing it, be sure his handwriting will be better.

If you keep making him practice, one day his writing will be beautiful. How is your own handwriting by the way?

@youless you should give him incentives like giving him prizes and sweets for his improved performance and beautiful hand writing. Do you agree?
