Do you have good or attractive handwriting?

+6 votes

Left handed, so must be careful if I want anyone to be able to read it. Always envied Mother, cousins, sisters with beautiful handwriting.

It depends on my mood at the time of writing. When I'm taking my time I can write nicely with neat evenly sized and spaced, rounded, upright, letters when I'm angry or just jotting down a quick note my writing is cramped, spiky and leans over. I'm ambridexterous but write primarily with my left hand.

Mine is like a spider got dipped in ink and crawled across the page.. I'm left handed also.. I think you lose the knack with nearly everything coming out of a keyboard now.

Never regret anything because at one time it was exactly what you wanted.

A few years ago, I sent for my handwriting analysis ...and it told me quite a lot of things about myself.

My handwriting has improved over the years, but to read it, you will instantly notice ...a creative flair in my writing.

German parent, German discipline so yes it is good. My children after 12 years of French Schools are good as well. I feel this American abandonment of penmanship is a great loss for society.   The kids thes days cannot put a coherent thought down on paper

I agree.
Here they were going to remove handwriting from schools completely, but it was voted against doing that.
Writing is like an Art, and must be pampered.
But is penmanship related to the ability to write well?
Yes it is P.  In what I have seen, experienced, and noted those who can only key have lost the ability to organize complex thoughts. They have no discipline, no organization and few analytical skills

It is a common complaint when dealing with millennial college hires. I will not deem to call them University trainers. Fellow employer so feel the same. It is the dumbing down of the educational system in the US.
There are lots of fantastic writers who have shitty penmanship
Archerchef, I have to side with Patresi on this one.  Beautiful handwriting has nothing to do with quality writing. I've had students with beautiful handwriting who could not write a well-written essay. On the other hand, some with messy handwriting had much better papers written and had a purpose in their writing.  
    My daughter writes IMO, excellently. Yet her handwriting is sometimes hard to decipher, not because she writes sloppily but because of the way she forms her letters in a vertical  and smallish style.
  The orig question was is your handwriting attractive? --that has nothing to do with actual writing as in writing an essay or even a paragraph.  JS!
Some very good examples some very poor examples, your point is?  Composition excellent, only Hemingway used a typewriter.  

My Grandfather personally hated Fitzgerald.  I also agree he was not great.  Everyone of your examples were of people who wrote long hand and and had learned composition
Yes but because your grandfather and you didn't like Fitzgerald doesn't mean that he wasn't a great writer.  I don't like Malcolm Lowry or James Joyce however I recognize that they're great writers:   http://www.npr.org/2014/09/08/346346588/how-gatsby-went-from-a-moldering-flop-to-a-great-american-novel
I will agree with you on Joyce P

I write like a 5 year old any more. I had nice "penmanship" at one time as learned in Catholic school, but over the years it has deteriorated. I have a bit of tendonitis or something in muy right hand and I don;t hold a pen the same, and it shows inmy typing too..as if it isn;t ever noticed.....

...like the way I punch a semi colon instead of an apostrophe.

The funny thing is my father's handwriting was awful to read so he was forever being called by pharmacists who could not read his prescriptions.

Very attractive.  I remember in high school I had one teacher who would look over my shoulder just to watch me write. She told me I had the prettiest handwriting she'd ever seen.  I was signing some documents at the bank one time and the lady there commented on my handwriting.

I remember years ago I found a old general store ledger from 1860-1861.  Whoever wrote in that ledger had handwriting that looked like a work of art.  Of course it was written with the old ink well system and the style was just beautiful.  But years ago students were taught "penmanship" and didn't graduate from high school printing in block letters like today.

It is pretty at times but can be too big.  I've been told it shows a good sense of humor.

I have two types. One is for things that I need to look presentable. The other is for me - a more comfortable style of writing.

Not anymore, I completely lost it because I started using printing in caps to write more clear and faster when I started my business. I would have to start practicing again. I just tried a few words and oh, my, horrible, cant even remember all the written letters !!!

My regular handwriting is average, neat but not exciting. But... I can do calligraphy, boxed letters, 3d lettering, bubble letters, graffiti type letters and can copy about any font. ☺

It's pretty good-slanted right.  People say it is pretty but I write too big!  It's a problem when I write a large check.

When im in a rush, it is chicken scratch but still readable.  When im relaxed, it is nice and clear

I just read and article about hand writing. It said people who have messy hand writing, think faster. I don't know how true that is.

Then I am thinking very very fast:)

That depends. Now I write at an angle as it looks less like chicken scratch. Sometimes I use a ruler underneath to make it more symmetrical.
