And what can I do about it?

ApolloandDaphne Sat 09-Mar-19 16:18:23

It looks really neat and legible to me. You should see mine!

QuirkyQuark Sat 09-Mar-19 16:19:02

What the hell is wrong with your writing?
It's legible, neat and evenly sized.

If you saw my husband's writing then that would be like a child's.

NorthernBirdAtHeart Sat 09-Mar-19 16:19:30

It’s really not that bad!

SpongeBobJudgeyPants Sat 09-Mar-19 16:19:35

Nah, that's not bad.

Bouncebacker Sat 09-Mar-19 16:20:14

Really? Thanks! That’s a boost for me - ice going to have to write on a flip chart next week and I’m very conscious about it!

There's nothing wrong with your writing?! 2 't's is a spelling error, not a handwriting problem. Yohr handwriting is neat and legible. What on earth do you think is wrong with it?

Perfectly legible. I struggle to decipher my own handwriting at times.

Notquiteagandt Sat 09-Mar-19 16:20:44

I write like a child. I cant do cursive writingm cant say its held me back or effected my life in anyway shape or form.

I think that is very neat. Mine looks like a sick spider vomited ink and then dragged itself around the page looking for help.

Theunreasonableone Sat 09-Mar-19 16:21:50

Christ you should see some of the writing I have to decipher at work (higher education). Your writing is very nice and neat!

SrSteveOskowski Sat 09-Mar-19 16:23:02

Your writing looks fine to me. You should see my brothers. He's in the wrong profession. He should have been a doctor!

Better than my writing - and I can't write in a straight line at all. But it wouldn't worry me.

Topseyt Sat 09-Mar-19 16:24:00

That looks fine to me.

I don't have great handwriting, though it is legible. These days so much is typed on the computer and just needs a signature, so it matters much less than it used to.

I can type much better and faster than I can write.

It looks fine to me - if you’re unsure blutack some paper to a wall and practice writing vertically (it’s slightly different than writing ‘flat’)

missyB1 Sat 09-Mar-19 16:27:07

Well i still print because I never got the hang of cursive! Oh and your writing is a million times more legible than my Dh's - who is a Doctor!

Bouncebacker Sat 09-Mar-19 16:27:08

Phew! Thanks all - and some wall writing practice is a great idea

iamkahleesi Sat 09-Mar-19 16:29:50

I think your handwriting is very beautiful, I wish mine was like that!!

angelikacpickles Sat 09-Mar-19 16:31:41

Looks absolutely fine to me.

FluffySlipperSocks Sat 09-Mar-19 16:34:05

Your writing doesn't stand out as bad at all. Looks quite average to me

BananasAreTheSourceOfEvil Sat 09-Mar-19 16:35:08

Grand by my standards! My DPs writing looks like a spider has been tap dancing in ink- yours is lovely.

HarrysOwl Sat 09-Mar-19 16:40:02

Your handwriting is lovely. smile

AintNobodyHereButUsReindeer Sat 09-Mar-19 16:41:17

Your handwriting is fine! There's really nothing wrong with it. My husbands is awful, although it's better than his mums, she writes like a small child who is just starting to learn.

Roomba Sat 09-Mar-19 16:42:14

It's better than mine and I used to teach nine year olds! It's definitely far better than my 13 year old's, and most adult I know tbh. People hand wrote so little these days even those who used to be able to write nicely can't so much now.

Your hand writing in very nice. I was almost excited to find someone with worst handwriting than me but alas my search goes on.
