Each week there are prompts which require answering.
I class my handwriting as neat, although I have noticed as I get older it does become more of a scrawl...but I put that down to too much writing at work.

from Edward Davidson's notebook
It was always very clear and legible, but it has changed a lot over the years, when I look back at my school work it was always very neat especially in the first pages of the books. Now, if I am writing a lot at work and having to write fast it does become a bit of a scribble. I think my handwriting reflects both of my parents handwritings too, in different ways.
I have always written using joined up writing, as we were taught to write in joined up writing from a very young age (although I remember friends from other schools who never did joined up writing). I have always and probably will always press down very hard when I am writing, so make quite an indent too.
