I'm continuing to work on my Copperplate script, and used holiday greetings and vocabulary here. Feedback and suggestions for improvement are appreciated. I had to switch to a Blue Pumpkin nib midway here because my Brause EF was catching on my paper. Happy holidays to all!

Such beautiful holiday writing, Galem! I particularly like the elegant flourishes.

Wow! I tried to start learning this yesterday, found that I don't have the right equipment, and now I'm frustrated because I won't order anything until confinement is over (I don't want to make others work for me when they would probably like to be safe at home, like me), and I want to practice so badly!


I cannot give you any advice, since your writing looks gorgeous and perfect to me. But would you mind if I ask a couple of questions myself?


1) How long have you been practising to get to this point?


2) How long did it take for you to write those lines?
