Do you go clockwise or anticlockwise?

Anticlockwise. Never thought of it before!

An O is anticlockwise but a circle is clockwise. Weird, eh?

Anticlockwise, starting at the top.

Clockwise. I'm left handed if that might make a difference?

Anti, and I start at the top if that's relevant.

Curiosity or actual imprtant research?

I agree with this!

Anticlockwise starting at the top, usually
However, when writing an o in the middle of a word, I write/draw it anticlockwise, starting at the side, because that's how I join.

left or right hand ?

Curiosity dimitri

Clockwise. And left handed as well

AsAProfessionalFekko Wed 23-May-18 17:25:37

I went to art school (if that has bearing on the matter).

MongerTruffle Wed 23-May-18 17:25:57

Actually, I usually draw circles clockwise.

AsAProfessionalFekko Wed 23-May-18 17:26:20

And I put a diagonal line through my 0s.

DaisysStew Wed 23-May-18 17:26:24

Clockwise- lefty here too.

Ginkypig Wed 23-May-18 17:26:58

If printing o or drawing a circle its clockwise from the top.

If writing cursive which is my usual I think it's normally anti clockwise.

O is anti clockwise so I can loop it to other letters when I write

Circle is the same but I don't really care grin

viques Wed 23-May-18 17:28:52

Left handed both anti.

Takfujuimoto Wed 23-May-18 17:29:10

I'm a leftie and I start at the top, go clockwise and there are little gaps at the top of them.

I write mainly in cursive.

Clockwise, leftie, went to art school grin
