Anatomy of an F

As I continue to attempt to improve my cursive handwriting, I’m determined to get some good practice time in each week. Today is Friday and I wanted to practice writing my Fs because I can never seem to get them right.

What follows are my practice sheets for today, using a simple old notebook I keep for just such an occasion, and a BIC disposable fountain pen.

As you can see, it started off looking like a crime scene, it’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to just sit and work on my penmanship. It takes about a page and a half to get into the groove.

But then, as I start finding strokes and curves that my hand and pen enjoy, everything starts coming together and looking great.

I’ve had a hard time deciding how I want my Fs to look. It’s all a delicate balance between the different parts of the letter and my ability to make the letter shapes look the way I want them to look.

In the end, I think I’ve got something that works for me that I can continue to practice until writing it becomes second nature.

Happy Friday!
