Many people lament, “My handwriting is awful.” And so they shy away from anything to do with handwriting. There is help, if one has an interest in polishing the skill with pen to paper.
The above simple tips are an invitation to ease into the “art of penmanship.” Other more detailed posts are to follow.

Fountain pens will definitely slow your writing speed down. Think of your pen as an artist’s instrument. It’s something you must be comfortable and confident with. Be playful. Pilot Varsity makes disposable fountain pens in many colors with a medium nib. They are quite affordable and fun to experiment with.Or, grab a pencil if that’s more comfortable to get you started. Loosen up. Doodle!
