I wonder if your handwriting became worse since we mostly type letters instead of writing them?
I write too. I send letters to family and I write in a journal. If anything, my handwriting has gotten better over the years. It used to be purely awful.
YES! I find when I write something down, it is horrible. My hand just does not do what my brain is telling it any more.
It happens to me when I haven't written anything for a while. But once my hand gets the hang of writing again, my handwriting goes back to normal.
My handwriting has actually gotten a lot better over the past few years. I went to an engineering school so out of habit I always write in all capital, block letters. I have actually been told quite a few times that my writing looks like it was typed.
I suppose I'm not really a typical case though
No. One of my hobbies is calligraphy, the art of beautiful handwriting. I create old english pages, birthday cards, holiday cards, thank you notes, motivational pictures with flourishes and drawn animals, etc.
I'm born with a bad handwriting XD... But I don't think it got worse when I used to type.
I've always had bad handwriting, and now I find that if I have to write anything (even something as simple as a check), my hand becomes tired, and my handwriting gets worse.
I see another problem in a few years: poor punctuation due to iPhones. Since my iPhone will automatically put the apostrophe in contractions and a period at the end of sentences (if you hit space twice), I find myself wanting my laptop to do the same and becoming frustrated when it does not!
I don't think my handwriting looks worse, but I just feel kind of clumsy when I haven't written by hand for awhile.
My handwriting has never recovered from college when I used to take so many notes that in order to keep up it kind of became a scribble. That was the turning point for me, but thankfully it hasn’t progressed any worse since I began typing more frequently.
Reading your answer i had a feeling that your handwriting just has nowhere to go worse :-) is that correct? In that case you can only improve it :-)
That would be correct. In fact I rarely write anymore because there is no point - no one can read it!
I used to be very proud of my caligraphy. Now, my hand only fits around a mouse. It even works better with a mouse than a tablet.
I cn't read my notes.
When my grandmother got older, I saw her hand writing become shaky. Maybe its not a bad thing to go 'digital.'
That is a funny idea to get ready to days when hands will be shaky with help of PC mouse. I will keep that in mind:-)
My father was by nature, a draftsman. My sons picked it up and write legibly. My cursive, from an older era, has detereated. What will the next genaertaion use?.
I guess my handwriting is still the same as it was; however, I am a slower now as compared during my school days when I used to write with pen more often.
I think that that happened. My handwriting became really messy when I had just bought my laptop, and was using that to do all of my writing. But it became neater when I stopped using my computer as much, so I think that your theory is right. Now people comment on how neat my writing is, although I still think that it is messy!!
I find myself printing with my pen when I can't use a keyboard, and it looks funky.

Should Cursive writing still be taught in school?My 15 year old son can barely sign his name in cursive and does all his writing in print and I find it maddening that kids aren't taught how to write well. His writing is like reading that of an inattentive 5 year old, yet he's extremely bright...

How can i Improve my Handwriting
by Mr. Happy 3 years ago
I am curious if people still write by hand or has everyone switched to the keyboard permanently? I still write by hand. I take notes, write on the side of my books, I often write on anything on which I can write in order to remember a though (my memory is terrible at times). I also write...

Do you prefer to write your first drafts on paper or on the computer?
