How to improve my Spencerian Script?

I’m very new to cursive as my school never really paid much attention to it. My friends are complimenting me and saying that my cursive is nice as I am trying to learn Spencerian Script. Can anyone give me some tips on this?

I am fat yet my handwriting is slim, how ironic.

I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present, when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable; and link to third-party content where I can, when I make a claim or refute a statement of fact in a thread. If there is something you can verify for yourself, I entreat you to do so, and judge for yourself what is right, correct for valid. I may be wrong, and my position or say-so is no more authoritative and carries no more weight than anyone else's here.

There are many good cursive exemplars online. Pick the one you like best. The IAMPETH website has excellent resources as well as a library of digital books. Keep in mind that some of the 19th century historical sources will prescribe many time-consuming exercises to develop “whole arm movement” and other techniques that might not be part of your goal.

 

When you are ready to move beyond practice exercises, try to write out full pages of prose—copy passages from a favorite book, keep a journal, take study notes, or write a letter to a friend.

 

Eventually, learn to write with confidence on unlined paper.  Try using a lined guide underneath the paper.  Assess the finished page critically and evaluate your margins, slant angle, and the spacing between words. If you wrote a letter, mail it to the recipient, even if it’s not perfect. They will be thrilled.

 

If you use cursive in your everyday life, it will eventually become natural to you and you will develop your own personal style.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.
