Improvement

I have decided that I really need to improve my handwriting. I often have to handwrite notes for my team and sometimes have to then translate my handwriting for them. I would have made a great doctor, if it wasn’t for the blood and gore involved in that.

I was looking at this website and that seems to suggest that a problem for a lot of people is that they “write with their fingers” rather than with their arm and shoulder. I am certainly someone who does that because when I write it is my hand that does all the work and my arm and shoulder remain pretty still. I have also sometimes wondered if I am actually left handed, despite using my right had to write. I am very ambidextrous and do a lot of things with my left hand and have always just assumed that I am right handed. I am not proposing learning to write with my left hand, but it could explain a lot if I have been using the wrong hand. Or perhaps I am just clutching at straws!

Anyway, I think I am going to make some effort to improve my handwriting and see if it makes it more legible.

I am not going to be about here tomorrow. I am away with work on some managers thing that none of us want to go on. I shall return on Thursday.

When I see left handed people write it seems very odd. They seem to scrawl.

Why dont you type instead of handwrite. In fact why dont you post a sample of your handwriting for us to analyse!!!

Oh, yes let's analyse! Bet you won't! ;-)

Kahless - I know some left-handed people with nice handwriting and as someone who writes with their right hand, I wouldn't have a leg to stand on criticising others for their writing.

Typing is difficult as I am correcting drafting and minuting things. It's too complicated to type it all up.

TF (and Kahless) - I have posted my handwriting on here before when I did a post that was written on a piece of paper. It was last year some time. How suitable vague...

Oh, yes I remember now, it was so bad I couldn't read it! ;-) TFX

TF - Perhaps I should hand write my response to this...
