I've just realized how inconsistent the swirls on my t's are... Oops :/ I'm no master penman hehe :)

The page actually held up quite well to the flex - no ghosting to the other side, even! Four bucks well spent

A bit of practice.

I just got a Reform 1745 that I won on a PIF and I can't write as pretty as you with it !!  :)

Thanks! It is a nice little pen that writes well and should encourage you to do more practice  :)

 

 

I know .. and I am trying. I have a couple of obstacles that I must overcome in the process. I am left-handed and  a side/underwriter .. so I have to work on not smearing ink .. which leads me to what I am currently working on .. writing SLOWER. To overcome sloppiness .. I need to slow down. I also am trying to write in cursive a little more. I don't think I want cursive to be my "always" writing style .. but I need to practice it and make it look good as well. Once I get the slower, steadier more consistent writing down, then will come working on moving the arm more and not so much the fingers. I have taken to writing my notes and things, then taking a picture and uploading it to evernote as opposed to just typing it in the app.

 

If you have anything to add to me current "curriculum" .. I am open to suggestions.

 

 

As far as the eyedropper question ..

 

I have not tried it and I can't really find any information on it. There are no rubber sealing rings around the body threads .. they do however make a good seal at the section joint. Speaking of the section, the internal (back-half of the section) is metal .. so I *THINK* it would be possible, but keep in mind, that the ink would come in contact directly with metal.

Going slow is always a good idea. Your handwriting in your posts look quite nice already! With some slow, steady and mindful practice you will gain the muscle memory that allows you to speed up. If you want to work on your cursive, I would recommend taking a look at the free books available at IAMPETH (if you don't know about them already). There are also resources especially for left-handed writers. I also found the Spencerian drills here very useful for practicing to write with my arm. Hope that helps!
