Real Talk: when I do decide to write by hand, I find myself speeding through because I find handwriting notes or in general aggravatingly irksome. So, I need to know, how can I just take a breather and write like my pants aren’t on fire or something?
If it calls for writing by hand, I want to learn how to just hand write with patience.
Tell me how.
My cursive is horrid.
grumbles I suppose I can give it a shot. I might just have worries that I will half print and half cursive the whole thing.
Why write by hand? Learn to type! Then you can get your thoughts down almost as fast as you can think them. ٩(˘◡˘)۶
Yup! Did you ever take typing classes in school?
I only want to hand write if the time calls for it not because I need to or something.
Think really slowly about what you have to do. I’ve heard it can be very useful (and works with typing, too)
weight the end of your writing utensil so it’s harder to write fast xP
maybe remind yourself about legibility? imagine someone else is going to be reading your handwriting later and you want to make it look neat and tidy for them to read, meaning you can’t speed-demon-scribble.
and maybe try ballpoints? idk. i know gel pens are the fave around here but it’s easier to write speedy with them.
it was just an idea not a very good one tbh
I can switch between either ballpoint or gel pens.
I just like the glide of gel that is all.
Also, wouldn’t ballpoint pens put more strain on your hands when you write or am I way off?
i don’t know, i don’t think so. i hate gel pens so i only write with ballpoints and my hand is alright.
