A handwriting tag I had long forgotten I even received whoopsss 😅 but I tag everyone who wants to give it a shot!
I have gotten some questions in the last about my handwriting and calligraphy and I thought I could try and answer them here!
For handwriting, I have been asked how I got my handwriting to look neat and in all honesty my normal handwriting has always looked the way it does now (give or take depending on how neat/in a hurry I am; it's pretty inconsistent if you ask me) 😅 In general, I'd say if you want to improve your handwriting, try pinpointing what about your handwriting you want to improve. For example, maybe I want to change my e's or a's to look a certain way, so I would practice writing it that new way in an alphabet or in some sentences to try and familiarize myself with it.
Then put the changes into use! The more you try to utilize these changes/improvements you want to make, the more it will become second nature and become integrated into a part of your normal handwriting.
For writing neater in general, I personally think writing slower helps since it gives me more time to carefully write everything out.
If you don't know where to go, try looking at people whose handwriting you like, and figure out what about them makes you like them. Then figure out what you want to try and incorporate into your own :)) As for calligraphy, I never really "learned" my calligraphy since it started out as just me messing around with writing in cursive with a brush pen. I tried to experiment with how I did certain letters by taking inspiration from other studygrams that I thought had nice calligraphy.
The key thing with making cursive look like calligraphy rather than just cursive is putting pressure to make thicker down strokes and less pressure for thinner upstrokes
Practicing is also key for me! I'm constantly looking for places to use it so I can keep practicing like in my bullet journal or in the header of my notes. My calligraphy didn't look that great at first, but by constantly practicing and utilizing it, it's become a lot better and more consistent.
That's all I could think of for now. I hope some of you guys found this helpful! If you g
