The Handwriting Challenge

I am a natural and proud left-hander.

And for the last six months I’ve been trying to write with my right hand simply because I want to be ambidextrous (being able to use both hands equally well).

Though it’s sometimes difficult to tell if I’m improving with my writing based on my strokes because my original handwriting is already sloppy enough to look like I’m still practicing how to write. The primary way I’ve been keeping track of my improvements is how hard I press on the paper and how I control my writing utensil. As of writing this post, I admit to still press quite hard, but my control has lessened.

Let’s take a look at how my right-hand penmanship differs from my left-hand penmanship through the Handwriting Challenge.

Simple Sketch

Left vs. Right-Hand Penmanship

If you look far away, you could barely see the difference.

For the most part, I still struggle a lot with my capital N’s, M’s, and W’s. And I was surprised to not struggle so much with my cursive writing. I don’t know if it’s magically because cursive was also the first font style I wrote with my left-hand or cursive just comes naturally to me? It obviously still needs work, but I expected worst.

Let's Chat!

What, in your opinion, is the hardest thing to do with your nondominant hand and why? If you attempted this challenge, which phrase or letter was the hardest to write with your nondominant hand?

Keep being inspired and take care always,
