"Having done this exact thing let me offer a bit of advice.  Be careful about the tip of the pen you get.  I got the calligraphy tip because it was what I thought I should get, but the calligraphy tips are flat and sharp cornered - and the…"

"That sounds like the way I was taught to hold my pen in primary school, and I'm only 20 now, so that's still fairly recent. I'm in Australia though; maybe they teach it here but not in other places?"

Chuck Forman replied to Adam Posey's discussion Penmanship

In most matters, or at least for others' peoples perceptions of you, the guiding principle should be to do what you feel is right, fair, and just, and to behave in a polite, friendly, and respectful manner.Now, here is the…See More
