Dear Raiche58,

No, this is not my regular handwriting. Since the size of handwriting increases when using this style, I found it impractical to make it my daily writing style. 

As far as the style itself, I developed it in two weeks with 6-7 hours of practice. I mixed spencerian and some calligraphy. So, this is not a "proper" style...

Having never actually been in a mosque, it reminds me of the arabic calligraphy I've seen pictures of inside and around doorways of mosques. Your style feels much stronger than normal Spencerian. Oh, and I could identify only one dove - not enough imagination on my part, I'm sure!

Breathe.  Take one step at a time.  Don't sweat the small stuff.  You're not getting older, you are only moving through time.  Be calm and positive.

Dear mfyorulmaz,


Not many people take the time and effort to create a writing style, how did you come to have this ability? Is it part of your artistic repertoire? 


Thank you!

the source of this talent is no different than any other talent I guess...that is according to some people it is from God, and according to others it is innate...

I am not an artist at all. I am an engineer and management consultant by profession. I don't think this is a proper style per se. It is just what I developed naturally, without planning to develop, within two weeks by just checking couple spencerian and calligraphy styles. So, it became my "writing style"...whatever you name it. Just to show you how my writing looked like before these two weeks, I am attaching another picture below.
