How I improved my Handwriting

During high school, my term exams (quizzes) required handwritten answers spanning multiple pages.

My handwriting was barely readable.

Based on some observations I started to write the letters with,

1) consistent shapes
2) same size
3) equal spaces between the letters and words.

This made my handwriting very readable but not necessarily pretty.

A few years back when I took an interest in typography I realized why this technique worked.

A printed page mostly uses a single font (letters of the same “shape”), same font size (same size) and consistent spacing between the characters (equal spaces). This among other things makes the page very readable.

I hope this technique helps someone improve their handwriting skills.
