I'm not really sure what I need to do/change to improve my handwriting. Specifically that of my left hand. It's always been decently legible, just not 'nice'-looking. For a short background on why, I was switched back in elementary school, and by the time I had a teacher that would let me write left-handed (or probably--didn't try!) I couldn't write fast enough with that hand to take notes/etc.
If not obvious, the smoother-looking samples were done with my right hand--the second and third blocks. The first and fourth block were done with my left hand (and, yikes, sorry about that first sentence! gonna blame it on being a new pen I haven't written much with--it just glides on the paper, which I'm not at all accustomed to!).
Anyway, how do I make my left-handed writing look nicer/smoother/more natural? I don't really care if it looks anything like my right hand, but it's the only thing I really have to compare it to (or to emulate)...which might not be a good thing!
But what is the best way to do that? Just writing hasn't done it (in the past/last time about three years ago, and that was using--primarily--ballpoints to practice with...), although it did improve my writing speed a little. I've held off further practice because I've long wanted to see if a fountain pen would be different (answer: yes, pretty sure it is), and I'd also like to practice better/actually make progress, if that makes sense?
Would just continuing to write now work/should I start there? Or would it be better to learn something/start over? But if so, what? Anything look like it would be a good fit? Anything particularly good/bad?
So, yeah...help? Tips? Suggestions?
