Lower case letters - rounded type

The alphabet at top demonstrates that it's possible to write the first 24 letters without lifting the pen from the paper. Continuity.

The red arrows give the direction of stroke in sections.

Aim not to lift the pen from the paper.

When practising the group of five letters, again aim not to lift the pen until completed.

There will be some exceptions to the continuity idea and they will be made obvious.

Before getting underway with actual writing, I feel that it helps with this particular style if the writer:

- slopes the handwriting approximately 45 degrees to the right.

- aims for continuity, by keeping the pen on the paper for the whole of each word if possible.


For ease of explanation, demonstration, and practise, I've broken the letters into four types, with my own nicknames; starting with the 'rounded' letters.
