I am one myself and I was wondering how to make the line variation come out on the correct strokes, as an over writer I always pull on the opposite stroke so the line fattens on the opposite stroke. Is there anything that I can do?

Celluloid is the greatest

I have seen pictures of over-writers forming their letters upside down. This makes the the shade go in the right place as well as keeps their hands out of the ink. I guess it will take some getting used to but it is worth a try - at least to see if it is easier than learning to write under-handed :-)

I have an opinion and I'm not afraid to use it.

If you are a lefty you don't pay attention to "rules."


Do what comes natural, you may create something new that serves mankind (but not the cookbook.)
