I got tired of my chicken scratchings, and made 2005 the year I improve my handwriting. I've been practising for 25 minutes a day since Christmas 2004, and am starting to see the benefits.
Not only can I now READ my handwriting, but my handwriting is also rather elegant.
But does penmanship still matter?
Yes, because hand-writing is really brain-writing. Practising your handwriting skills helps you to become more creative.
