How to: Get Neater Handwriting! (by stuudytips)
Know your handwriting: Before you improve something, you want to know where it’s currently at, right? Analyze your handwriting. Note down what you dislike about your handwriting. Here are some aspects of your handwriting you can think about:
- Spacing - How spaced out are your letters?
- Slant - Are your letters slanted?
- Curves - Does your handwriting have curves or straight lines?
- Pressure - Are your letters light or dark?
- Size - How big are your letters?
Find a style of handwriting. Find a style that’d you’d like to emulate in your own handwriting. This could be a friends, one pulled off the internet, or your neatest handwriting.
Practice the alphabet. Using the style of handwriting you want, write rows of letters. This will train your muscles to write these letters in opposition to your own handwriting.
Practice Writing Words. After practicing the alphabet, practice writing words. You could write about your day today, something you’re looking forward to, a to-do list, or these words that I randomly thought of:
Use your whole arm. When writing words, you’re supposed to use your whole arm, as opposed to just your hand.
Try to write at least once a day. It will help with your muscle memory.
Pick a writing utensil that’s comfortable.
Always write on the line. This will help size in addition to keeping your lines straight.
