To want to have neat handwriting?

My handwriting has always been all over the place, was constantly getting told off about it at school (v old fashioned victorian style prep school) and it made me really self conscious about it which I feel may have worsened the problem as I just avoided writing anything at all costs!

I would now like to see if there's any way I can improve it as I've been promoted in to a job where I'll be expected to write on whiteboards etc. And DP's is even worse than mine so someone needs to be able to write legible Xmas cards! grin

Has anyone successfully improved theirs as an adult and if so how?

Following. I have the handwriting of a blind chimp.

Mine is truly terrible but it's much better if I write in capitals. I also have to write slowly. People are usually shocked when they see my writing as I'm usually a beat and tidy type of person. I can do 'neat' crafts but not handwriting.

In the olden days wink I used to have my handwritten notes used as evidence in court so I had to write everything really really slowly. It was painful. If I interviewed people I'd keep things very succinct.

You could try going right back to basics and re teach yourself?

Thanks all - I think the worksheet idea and basically starting from scratch is a good one. I think I just need to practice practice practice!
