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.
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.
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.
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!
