I seriously freaked out at the moment. You and I write our character “a” the same way. And I’ve NEVER run into anyone else who does that. Seriously.
That’s the way I’ve always done it. It matches the way it looked in the book so it made sense to me.
Hello Erik – I thought that was how everyone did the letter ‘a’. I do that usually (though sometimes I do it the ‘handwritten’ way. It depends on where it is in the word.
I think your handwriting is perfectly legible by the way, JP 🙂
I used to get in trouble for that in elementary school. I just made it the way it looked in a book. I also got in trouble for putting a line through my Z and 7.
OMG! I do that too. You’re scaring me here.
Your handwriting is crystal clear in terms of legibility. We will absolutely under no circumstances discuss mine.
My handwriting has significantly diminished in quality over the years. I must be out of practice.
Ah, the line in the Z and 7 is, as you probably know, the European way of writing them. As for your writing having declined, I just wish mine had declined that way! We were taught the Palmer Method by the nuns in the school where my parents sent me. I never liked it and from the beginning it began to deteriorate. I made sure to get a portable typewriter in high school because my writing was becoming unreadable even then.
