ISW_Kaputnik posted a topic in Handwriting & Handwriting ImprovementAs a right hander, happy to accept whatever advantage it gives me in handwriting or the rest of life, there is something that I've idly wondered about for the past year or two. It came up again recently when I viewed an Israeli movie, Suicide, in Hebrew with subtitles. In scripts where one writes from right to left (Hebrew and Arabic occur to me), is it actually an advantage to be left handed? In the movie, a detective takes notes on a case on a legal pad, using a wood pencil. At one point he mentions, apparently casually, how much easier he finds the pencil to use than a pen. He is of course writing right to left, but he is using his right hand. I'm not thinking of the slow, deliberate writing of calligraphy, perhaps using a dip pen or even a brush, but the rapid, everyday, "good enough" writing involved in taking notes or writing a note to somebody. I have no intention of studying either Hebrew or Arabic at this point; I'm just curious.
Hello from Israel. I'm an American living and working with my family in Israel. I teach English and Bible at a local Arab Christian High School and am new to the FP world. Right now I'm using a Metropolitan Fine and Safari Fine every day in a Leuchtturm A5 squared notebook. My kids are I love writing with FPs and are exploring the best options for writing in Arabic and Hebrew. Looking forward to learning from experience here on FPN.
