Write here

Following up on my post the other day about the BBC’s article on the death of handwriting, lots of people have written into the BBC with their handwriting samples. It is really interesting to see all the different styles so take a look here.

And here is quite a bad picture of mine:

Some very small writing

My writing is ridiculously small – I wonder what that says about me?

  1. See how your writing sits in the center of the page? That shows you picture in your mind how things should look. The smallness indicates you can be very focused when doing your work. At times it may even be necessary to touch you to get your attention. Your name is indented to the right in the more formal style so you probably don’t write business letters often. And while the sentence has no slant to the writing your names slants slightly left so you are a very private person.

      Hi Carole,
      Thanks so much for this – it really made my morning! It’s fascinating stuff and your mini analysis feels pretty accurate (I checked with my boyfriend and he laughed and said “yep – that’s you!”) I’ve read a fair bit of true crime stuff in my time and it is always interesting to me how handwriting (when it is available to the police and psychologists) becomes such a part of behaviour profiling and is so often, extremely accurate.

      My writing is usually smaller than the sample I put on my blog but it wasn’t photographing very well so I had to write a bit bigger (which I find hard). I also doodle quite small as well. Have you seen my doodling post?
