1. 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 🙂

    1. 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.

  2. 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.
