If you don't mind me asking how do you write kanji so well and neat?
Thanks for your message!
You must be looking at an old post as I haven’t been active for a while, but anyway: it’s practice. My kanji still look too much like a font and are too angular, resulting in handwriting that is easy to read but looks really unnatural to native speakers.
I trained myself to write kanji smaller by using 2cm gridded paper, then going down to 1cm gridded paper, or 0.5mm square paper. Writing on gridded paper really helped my kanji balance (they were all too short and too wide before). I wanted to make sure I could write in a practical way, so I don’t need an A3 page to leave someone a quick memo, which is why I decided to actively write smaller.
Following stroke order and learning radicals also helps my writing to flow a bit, though it is still undoubtedly one of my weakest areas.
I found it helpful to keep writing until radicals become more automatic, or I can write a kanji without really thinking about it (which I can only do with some of the simpler ones, or ones in my address, which I regularly need to handwrite on forms etc).
Mostly it’s just repetition, I have hundreds of pages of writing practice in notebooks. I have spent hundreds of hours writing. I’ve timed it as I keep a study time log, it honestly is hundred of hours.
I honestly think almost everything about language learning is just the number of hours you spend with your nose to the grindstone.

The flames crackled softly, and in their crackling she heard the whispered name Jon Snow. His long face floated before her, limned in tongues of red and orange, appearing and disappearing again, a shadow half- seen behind a fluttering curtain. Now he was a man, now a wolf, now a man again.

Honestly, this means so much to me. So much. When I made this blog, I wasn’t expecting to get this far – especially not in such little time. I think it’s been less than a year tbh. However, despite the relatively short amount of time I’ve been here, I’ve met some rather amazing and wonderful people. People that have helped me change and recognize myself, people that have given me beautiful words of advice and compliments, people that I can genuinely call my best friends. This seems pretty over-the-top, considering this is just a silly anime blog, but it’s true hahaha! I’ve bonded with a ton of you and I can’t wait for the many more to come (hopefully!). Love you guys, and of course, thank you so so so so so much for stickin’ around and for joining me.
I don't mean to be critikal (hurr hurr) about the voice you gave Sans, but if you listen closely, he sounds more like a certain youtuber than he does Patrick.
In the next episode I change his voice completely, I think I made him sound too dumb and like a sidekick when I made him sound like Patrick. (Though I still think his in game font sound is like Patrick)
His new voice will be like a rough Brooklyn type of voice because he’s like an uncle telling bad jokes haha. Plus I realised he’s WAY smarter and aware than I made him out to be. Some people still won’t like it but I like it a lot more
I want to learn Japanese but I'm terrified when I see those kanji written in any way but the standard computer font. Like, anyone's handwriting and even sometimes when the font is different. Will it go away with actual knowledge? I'm sorry if I don't make sense
I find reading handwriting easier than it used to be but still quite challenging. Calligraphy is often illegible to me. I think practise is a big factor in being able to read handwriting. Sometimes you can find manga where the text has been handwritten by the artist, so that would be one way to practise. You could also try to find a penpal through HelloTalk who would send you snail mail letters so you could get practise of reading and writing that way. Does anyone know any sources for images of Japanese handwritten stories or essays that could be used for practise?
