Hi guys, it has been a long time that I am struggling for legible and good handwriting, I went through different types of handwriting, first I wrote in cursive but never became fluent with it then I tried separate words but were looking kind of childish writing, then I wrote on middle of the line then again I jumped back on the line with different techniques of writing, so I came to this form so that you good people can help me improve my handwriting. My one more problem is that I can write in more than 20 styles (2 of which are attached in the photo) this has became problem for me because which one style should I finalize and choose.

My handwriting attached in this photo are 2 writings, open photo it will be named "1" and "2" in other photo attached (written in red colour on the photo)  so you people can distinguish between two different handwritings of mine, my both handwritings in both pics are legible means I can write it fast and fluent but tell me by looking at the photo that is such writing acceptable or not and which one should I choose, thanks.

Your handwriting is legible with personality and better than most. I don't think you need improvement but you might enjoy taking a look around iampeth.com

+1, Alexandra, any improvements are gilding the lily. Either hand is legible and works well, both have personality and look good. Unless you feel the need to learn another hand, say, italic or copperplate, wouldn't worry too much. Maybe use one when you are feeling up and happy, reserve the other for when you are feeling low.\?




From a person's actions, we may infer attitudes, beliefs, --- and values. We do not know these characteristics outright. The human dichotomies of trust and distrust, honor and duplicity, love and hate --- all depend on internal states we cannot directly experience. Isn't this what adds zest to our life?

Hi Shahab; the most important aid to helping you to improve your handwriting is the use of an appropriate paper which MUST be lined in the following way;You obviously must have a base line so draw a straight line ,above that about half a centimetre
draw another line,next draw a line another half a centimetre,so the result is this
............... when you begin writing the bottom line serves as your base,the line
................above serves as the top of the non capital letter and the very top ............... tells you where the top of your letter should be, this was how our
EXCERCISE BOOKS were ruled in my school in the UK and if you did not keep to the
guidelines God Help You because Sister or Brother showed you where you went wrong!!!
resulting in fab writing!!!!! I hope this helps ,if you have problems understanding what I have written please advise and I will try to assist you further.oneill

I'd choose #2, but I would work on getting the letters to touch the base line. The rest will probably fall in place.
