“If I could organize my day,
just in terms of pure enjoyment,
I would be with other people at a whiteboard.”

Handwriting for Adults
Does your handwriting work for you?
Handwriting helps you learn, share ideas, and be creative. Handwriting today is still a professional skill. It’s your visible speech. At its best, it’s a source of pride.
Your handwriting needs to keep up with the demands of modern life. It should be legible on the whiteboard and distinctive on a handwritten personal note.
What is italic?
These days, we think about “italic” as a way to make writing slanted on a word processor. But italic handwriting is a style of writing that was developed five centuries ago in the Italian Renaissance.
Most handwriting styles have a print and a cursive form — and so does italic.
Italic handwriting is:
Legible – it has an uncluttered flow, even when written rapidly
Logical – it has an easy transition from printing to cursive writing
Easy to write – its shapes and strokes are a natural fit for hand movements
Easy to learn – it is simple to get the basics across with a step-by-step approach.
"Handsomely handwritten, wondrously clear, easy to use, and even witty, Write Now is the perfect resource for anyone who wants to improve a deteriorated script."
