    When I'm writing slowly and not burdened with time limit or anything similar to that, it's good. On exams, it was bad, pretty bad, but readable for anyone.

    You tell me:

    The fourth signature down the left side of the Declaration of Independence belongs to me.

    Mine has always been awful - being left-handed was especially a pain at Middle School (ages 9-13) as I had to use a fountain pen and that meant dragging part of the writing hand through the still-wet ink on the paper unless I curved the hand uncomfortably over the top of what I was writing - that's what I did until High School when we were allowed to use biros but the damage had been done by then, and my handwriting never recovered.

    Which brings a question to mind - is it an advantage to be left-handed when writing texts which read from right to left such as Hebrew or Arabic?
    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    Mine is quite good, because I don't want other people ask me words by words.

    I have good handwriting. When I worked in an education library, and had to hand-write book slips for someone to type up, she never had a problem with my handwriting, in contrast to the writing of some of my colleagues. I also had to teach handwriting when I taught younger children and made teaching materials for them to look at and copy.

    I mostly type things nowadays, like everyone else, but I still enjoy handwriting and copying out lists and poems as a form of self-expression: a lot of attention was paid to handwriting 'in my day'.
    My fiddle my joy.

    Yes. I have no trouble reading any of your posts. Very neat. Almost like print.

    Half-joined up and quite neat but with some particular letters that are really unorthodox that arose out of small habits building up over time. I write quickly and neatly, but strangely it depends on the pen. I hate using biros - they make it look shakey and childish.
