Have you been typing at computers for so long that your handwriting has become unreadable? Follow these steps to make your handwriting beautiful again.


Step 1: Find a style you like
Decide how you'd like your handwriting to look. Study cursive samples or look at different fonts.

Step 2: Create a sample sentence
Write a sample sentence at the top of a sheet of paper, carefully emulating the writing style you've chosen.

Tip
Print the sentence in a chosen font and tape it to the top of a lined sheet of paper.

Step 3: Choose your writing tool
Select a pen or pencil that feels good in your hand. Consider thickness, grip, and how well it glides across a page.

Tip
Don't grip your instrument too tightly.

Step 4: Practice
Copy the sentence, again and again. Practice individual letters to master the details of that writing style.

Tip
Keep your neck, shoulders, and arms relaxed while you practice.

Step 5: Pick a new sentence
Pick a new sentence with different letters, and practice copying that sentence.

Step 6: Try different pens or pencils
Practice with other pens and pencils once you feel comfortable with this style.

Step 7: Watch your style transform
Watch your handwriting transform to a style you can take pride in. You may never go back to the computer!

Did You Know?
Handwriting that slants forward indicates a warm, expressive person; letters that slant backward indicate a cool, reserved personality.
