Hi there. I have created a new blog, listing some of my favorite pens, and there is a section on how to achieve better penmanship. I would love to get some comments from the readers of the Fountain Pen Network about the pens. I would also like to have your ideas on how to achieve clearer, nicer-looking writing. You may be the first person to reply to my blog! Thank you.

Hi Bruce Leeds.
In order to achieve clearer, nicer - looking handwriting, I would recommend the following:
1) Find a pen that feels comfortable in your hand; one with a medium/fine nib, having a little flex if possible.
It must be free of faults. For example, you will never write neatly with a pen that has ink - flow issues.
2) To begin with, write between thin pencil guide - lines and strive for consistency of height and slope with even density.
It shouldn`t be long before you can dispense with the guide lines.
3) The most important thing of all, is that you`ve got to PRACTICE, as with anything you wish to become good at.
Hope this helps. It`s the way I had to do it in school - and it works!
