When writing cursive script I have tried to train my hand not to add dots and crosses until the end of the word as this seems to be faster than lifting the pen mid-word
Of course dotting and crossing can take almost as long as writing the word in the first place, especially in European latin alphabets which use acents, umlaut characters and cedillas to add to a plethora of dots and dashes.
German latin cursive has one trick up its sleeve which I haven't seen in modern English cursive - writing a lower case "t" without needing to go back and cross it.
You can see Julie Turrie forming the letter at 6:10 in this video
Does anyone have any tricks to reduce the number of dots and crosses in their cursive writing?
