Thanks, Lofty. The one who voiced the most disdain for my handwriting was my best friend, who I suspect is also an Aspie. His handwriting is very rigid and open. He likes to plan things out extensively, and his handwriting reflects that very much so. I tend to let my handwriting flow out of me...I think that's how everyone writes, correct? I was actually much neater as a child, because I thought we all had to write the same way as it was shown in the workbooks.

After being told as an adult that I have bad handwriting-aka immature, I developed a semi-cursive style that was easier for me to write with. But writing normal is hard for me.

Funny you should mention poor handwriting. If I join letters, it's bad to the point that even I have trouble reading it. I usually write individual letters or if it has to be understood, in capitals which are, quiet oddly, very neat.
I try to take one day at a time but sometimes several days attack me all at once.

My handwriting can be good, if I take time and think it over, but often it is quite bad so bad .

My handwriting is very bubbly and my perfectionism leads me to take more time to get it right. If I just write normally though, it can be a mess.

Lofty wrote:My handwriting is fine - I guess I must have applied the same high standards to that as I do to everything else - but the method itself is slightly strange in that I use a large amount of pressure to write, and after a couple of hours these days my wrist will hurt a lot.

So roll on two post-grad level three hour exams! The last one I attempted took 17 sides of A4...


I know what you mean when it comes to exams, I can write fairly quickly and use many extra answer booklets as I go on a lot because I love writing about the material! My handwriting is pretty bad, my mum has always berated me about it, but I am too stuck in my ways with it now and I hardly ever write anymore and more often than not use a laptop to type. It is much easier and clearer to read! The main issue my mum has is that it is hard for people to read, but when marking exams, my examiners have never said that they could not read my writing, so I cannot honestly see how it is such a massive issue

my handwriting is illegible even to me.

Same here. I can make it be good if I write slow and concentrate. I always got U's in elementary school (unsatisfactory) in handwriting. I remember my 3rd grade teacher say to me one day, "How can such a pretty little girl write so sloppy". If I'm in a hurry or upset or angry, then it's terrible. That's when I just let it flow and don't try to make it neat. Pretty bad then.
