Cursive is an efficient and aesthetic way of writing. Some people continue to write in this fashion, while others have forgotten how completely. I remember learning cursive writing back in elementary but stopping as I got older. Reading and writing in cursive is an important skill, especially in the workplace. You can avoid the awkward moment of not being able to read your colleagues' notes and improve your writing speed.
If you want to learn how to improve your cursive writing or want to learn it, here are five helpful tips:
1. Practice the basic cursive alphabet – You must know how to write the letters first. Many videos and images are available on the internet to help you out.
2. Start with a standard pen – You likely won't have fancy calligraphy pens every time you need to write at work or school. A simple fountain pen or ballpoint pen will do.
3. Use lined paper – The lines help guide the shaping and sizing of your letters. Paper that includes dotted lines in the middle can also help you write evenly. I recommended using spiral-bound notebooks because they are easier to open.
4. Be consistent and practice – Incorporating cursive into your daily life and making it a routine will bring faster results. After all, practice makes perfect.
5. Find inspiration or create variations – Not everyone sticks to the basics. Finding a style that suits you can make comprehension and writing time much faster.
