    I wonder if your handwriting became worse since we mostly type letters instead of writing them?

    No, it didn't. I still write, maybe that's why.

    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.

      It actually surprised me how many people still write letters instead of sending them via e-mail

    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 smile

      Lucky you... I have to make efforts to write letters understandible to others. :-)

    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!

      If you do not rely on your own punctuation it is an alarm :-) you should do smth with it :-) Probably you should get rid of iPhone (joking of course !) Thank you for an answer

    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 :-)

    2. CBartelmey profile image79
      CBartelmeyposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      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.
