How to make English handwriting better | Practices to make your handwriting neat, clean & consistent


Here I have written few parameters of handwriting These parameters are very important to make handwriting neat and uniform Here handwriting style comes first What’s your handwriting style? How do you write? Cursive or print? That is your handwriting style. The second parameter is ‘angle of your handwriting’. It means what is your angle of writing. Suppose I write some letter ‘H’. This is at the vertical angle. Or if I write a letter ‘H’ in this way then this is at a slanted angle or a slanted ‘H’ in other direction Then this is the angle of your handwriting The third parameter is ‘alignment’ If I consider this baseline as a reference line Then where we write with respect to baseline, that will be the alignment of your handwriting Suppose this is a baseline Here I have written touching the baseline. Some people write above the baseline keeping some space above the baseline This is the alignment of your handwriitng The fourth parameter is ‘the size of letters’ The size of your letters matters a lot. it should not be too big or too small If the size of letters is too small then it becomes difficult to read Suppose here I write a letter ‘S’. And I want to write the letter ‘g’ just above the letter ‘S’ The tail of the letter ‘g’ comes down the baseline and overlaps with a letter ‘S’ Considering this scenario, you have to decide the size of your letters Suppose again I write a letter ‘s’ in this much size and here I write a letter ‘g’ Here you can see there is enough spacing remains between these two letters. That’s why the size of the letters is very important. Two letters should not be overlapped each other The Fifth parameter is ‘ the spacing between two words or two letters’ This is also an important parameter. If you keep the proper spacing between words, your handwriting looks neat and uniform. How I provide spacing between two words? I draw an imaginary letter ‘S’ between these words. I provide a bit more space than that imaginary letter occupies between the words. The thickness of the tip of the pen, you can provide that much spacing between two letters. Here you can see this These five parameters are so important We will see how we can improve these parameters using the graph paper Here I will explain the first parameter ‘the writing style’ out of these five parameters. To improve your writing style first, you must know how to draw letters properly If you want to draw letters properly then it is important to practice the shapes of the letters In one of our previous videos, I explained to you how letters are made from the combination of different shapes Thus you have to practice shapes of the letters first Here I explained to you how to improve the simple handwriting letter shapes. you need to practice these shapes horizontal lines Vertical lines slanted lines Zigzag lines and in curves, there are round shapes, circles, semi-circles, waves in both upward and downward directions. If you want to draw letters properly then it is important to practice these shapes as all letters are made up of different shapes. I have already uploaded the video on how to draw shapes. I will put the video link in the description. You can check those videos. If you want to write cursive letters then these are the shapes for cursive letters. you need to practice these shapes to draw cursive letters You can easily write cursive letters by practicing these shapes As I have written this letter “a” which is a combination of round shape and a curve line. This is how a letter ‘a’ is drawn So, If you want to improve your handwriting style then it is important to practice the shapes of the letters. Next part is ‘ the angle of your handwriting’ With the help of graph paper, we can easily maintain the angle of our handwriting. I have written this sentence in this fashion If I write this same sentence in this way then.. Here you can see the angle of writing This angle is different this word has a different angle of writing this angle is also different You can see the difference between this new sentence and a previously written statement. The previously written sentence looks neat while newly written statement does not look neat and uniform as words are having different angles of writing. Here all the words are not written with same angle. So it is important to maintaiin same angle throughout your handwriting Your handwriting will look neat and uniform by maintaining the same angle of writing. Write any sentence in your current handwriting style i.e. cursive or print. Here I have written “I want to improve my handwriting” And try to write that same sentence in different angles Here you can write in some different angle. same sentence with less angle than previous Here you can easily maintain the angle of handwriting with the help of graph paper And you have to maintain your preferred angle throughout your writing. And you have to practice with the same angle This completes ‘the angle of writing’ part The third part is ‘ the alignment of letters’ Suppose I write the same sentence in this way Suppose this is a baseline. Where we write with respect to the baseline. Either we write touching the baseline or write between two lines Here a letter ‘I’ written way above the baseline and this second word is slightly above the baseline Here it touches the baseline and this does not touch the baseline Here alignment is not maintained consistently throughout the writing If you make a mistake in maintaining alignment then your handwriting will never look neat So you have to practice to make your letter alignment correct Take any passage or a sentence that you want to write Those who have a problem in maintaining proper alignment, Practice writing that passage or sentence slowly Here I have left little spacing above the baseline and I will follow the same spacing throughout the sentence Here I have not written a complete sentence You need to maintain the alignment throughout your writing If you write with correct alignment throughout then your handwriting will look neat and uniform. Next part is ‘the size of letters’ You have to keep the size of the letters uniform. This is 1cm square on the graph paper. but in single line paper, two lines are closer than the lines on the graph paper (about 75% of graph paper lines) So there is not a 1cm gap between normal single line paper According to that spacing between two lines, you have to decide the size of the letters here I write ‘I”. I have to write in half part and further, reduce the size of the small letters to 75% 75% of the space between these two lines Suppose I write this capital letter ‘I’ with this much of size and then I write small letters in this much of size This is how you can use graph paper to maintain the height of the letters You can easily monitor the size of your letters with the help of graph paper You can not easily monitor the size of the letters in single line paper Graph paper provides guidelines so you can write letters with uniform sizes. Next part is ‘ the spacing of the letters’ What I have previously explained about the spacing of the letters? Imagine I have written some imaginary letter ‘S’ between two words. and make a square around the letter ‘S’ adding 1mm more outside the letter ‘S’ So you have to provide this much of space(length of the square) between two words. So this spacing can be easily maintained with the help of graph paper Here I write it again Measure this spacing, it might be 4-5 mm max. 1,2,3,4 I write next word after 4 vertical lines Again 1,2,3,4. I write next word after 4 vertical lines This is how you can maintain proper spacing between two words And you can keep the spacing between two letters as the spacing between the two consecutive vertical lines on graph paper So you can easily maintain that spacing So you can make your handwriting neat and uniform with the help of graph paper Practice these points regularly so you can easily improve your handwriting within a month And for practice, you should use graph paper only You can easily improve these parameters with the help of graph paper So that’s it in this video, If you like the video then like and share the video and subscribe to the channel Thank You :):)
