I really like this description/scrutiny of handwriting. I was recently talking about this with a friend I write letters to. I mentioned how I prefer writing in script. She wrote back saying, "Printing is not my preference as well. But neither is cursive. Printing w/o connecting letters seems tedious. When I do cursive, I feel as if my pen is about to 'run out of breath' and I will mess up."
Well anyways, that is what I want to be - more or less upright, marching gamely at a good clip, not in a hurry, but not dawdling, either. And I hope I won't be crowding and jostling towards the end.
