Consider a hen. Now consider the hen having an epileptic fit. Now consider the hen having a fit with its feet dipped in ink. Now consider the hen having a fit, spazzing across a large canvas with its ink-dipped feet leaving a trail.

My handwriting would be jealous of the hen's trail .

I'm the same. I have to sign my name a lot in work. You'd swear there was at least 10 different people in my job with the same name.

In my mind I have copperplate handwriting. The reality is rather different.

I have huge, bubble handwriting. I dot my i's with circles, for god's sake! People compliment it a lot for some reason. I think it looks like something a fourteen year old girl would do in a journal.

I won a prize for 'most improved handwriting' in 1992. It has deteriorated considerably since then.

It's sloppy and I've often tried to improve it but the big problem is that I'm wicked slow which I can't seem to improve either. It makes exams a real trial.

I cant read my own writing. Its horrible. I'm actually just as bad with typing. I have to correct at least 2 words per sentence.

Mine can be very neat, when I can be bothered to make the effort.

Hours at national school spent transcribing material at the behest of the Christian Brothers, they were very keen on making sure we all had good handwriting.

Forensic analysis on a sample of my handwriting would suggest it was scrawled mid-stroke while travelling in the back of an unlit and moving Transit van being driven down a Cavan boreen during an earthquake.

I had incredibly neat handwriting until I was taught joint hand writing in primary school. I don't know why they teach it, it's not necessary, State Examiners absolutely hate it and my handwriting gradually went to sh/te.
