on a mission to improve my handwriting

My handwriting has evolved an awful lot over the last few years. From being purely printed in 2013 to being a different type of print in 2014 to being slightly joined up in 2016 to being straight and joined up in 2017.

I'm not totally happy with my handwriting and want to improve it, so the way I've done this is to write as often as possible in a dedicated Rhodia notebook. I write about anything and everything. I am trying out a way to write with upright letters that are joined up as you can see here:

And also cursive, with a right slant, as below. I even write song lyrics when a song comes up on iTunes which helps me learn to write neatly and quickly too.

Hopefully, in time, my handwriting will be super neat when written quickly. At the moment, it can be extremely messy when writing quickly (especially during busy on-calls!).


  1. Hi Angela. I remembered this: "Fountain pens want to connect letters. Ballpoint pens need to be convinced to write" (https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2015/08/ballpoint-pens-object-lesson-history-handwriting/402205/).
    Your handwriting is very beautiful, it inspires me to write neatly.

  2. What a nice thing to do, Angela! As you like writing and write quite a lot you should be able to improve your writing very quickly. I think that print or proper script writing are very difficult and tiring to read especially when the B, D, P and T are not properly written and can be confused with other letters. The proportion of the letters must be respected which create a beautiful hand writing. Good luck with your exercises and I hope to see your improved writing soon!

  3. Hi Angela! I think you handwriting is beautiful and it is an inspiration for me, to keep my notes neat. If you don't mind me asking, what is the personality test you took? Thank you!
