You and I write our character “a” the same way. And I’ve NEVER run into anyone else who does that. Seriously. Reply J.P. says: 3 February 2013 at 12:59 am That’s the way I’ve always done it. It matches the way it looked in the book so it made sense to me. Reply pretinama says: 2 February 2013 at 3:58 am 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 🙂 Reply J.P. says: 3 February 2013 at 12:58 am 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. Reply Erik Rubright says: 12 February 2013 at 7:32 pm OMG! I do that too. You’re scaring me here. Reply Will says: 2 February 2013 at 8:04 am Your handwriting is crystal clear in terms of legibility. We will absolutely under no circumstances discuss mine. Reply J.P. says: 3 February 2013 at 12:58 am My handwriting has significantly diminished in quality over the years. I must be out of practice. Reply Will says: 3 February 2013 at 6:40 am 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.
