Hello fellow penmen, I was wondering, since I started doing some research into cursive improvements, custom grinds etc. I write in a righty side writer position, pointing my tip approximately towards the 10 o'clock position. (and also rotating the nib sligtly clockwise) basically Oblique (left foot oblique) felt like nonsense to me. I wanted to mimic the classical thic downstroke cursive with a stub, but realised this is not possible for me. So to achieve this I would probably need and architect grind (going to try some and let you know) But For this hand position, any stubs just look silly (thick horizontals and thin verticals). Also flex nibs are strange to use, as I would flex them sideways, which makes them scratchy... Any right-handed sidewriters out there? Any tips? Btw here is a sample of my writing
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.
