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.
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'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!
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.
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!!
