Henlo!

 

My handwriting is not the best and using fountain pens have improved it quite a bit but I am always seeing beautiful post of people's handwriting and I am really struggling with having my handwriting look so nice.

 

Any tips that could help me out?

I find that everyone can develop their own style, unique to themselves, and yet at the same time, still be pleasant to the eye. One thing is to practice your cadence or the spacing between letters. Also, consistency between the same letter is the key. There can be different variances between letters if you're using a linked cursive script; for example, letters following an "o" look different than say following an "i" because the joining element is at different heights.

 

To practice this, I usually copy words. Long words, with many I's and O's. Poetry. Anything that inspires you to write. I have certain words that I do love to practice: titanium, electrocardioversion, osmosis. Those, of everything I find, help with my cadence and linkages between letters, and help develop the muscle memory.

 

What I don't find helpful, is the thickness of your lines. A bold nibbed line hides many details. If a script looks lovely with a thin-nibbed pen, it will look nice with a bolder nib as long as you can still make out the details.

Posting a photo of your writing might help folks understand and see where you're coming from.

Hi, Karlene, Welcome to FPN!

 

I find that a study of scripts -- one at a time -- helps with my handwriting. I have adopted Italic for my usual hand and do Copperplate for special occasions. In addition, I studied the historic hands; textura, uncial, Roman capitals, etc. All help me to develop a full, disciplined hand.

 

Best of luck,

Randal

Yours,
Randal

From a person's actions, we may infer attitudes, beliefs, --- and values. We do not know these characteristics outright. The human dichotomies of trust and distrust, honor and duplicity, love and hate --- all depend on internal states we cannot directly experience. Isn't this what adds zest to our life?
