Well we have talked about the baseline or line of reality, the white spaces or margins so now we will talk about the zones. Remember the paper you learned to write on with three lines to mark the area to write. The lowercase letters a, c, e, i, m, n, o, r, s, u, v, w and x were made to fit between the bottom line and the dotted line. This is the mid-zone which reflects the day to day world or the ego. The letters b, d, h, k, l, t have a stem that extends above the dotted line into the upper-zone and it represents the mental area or super id. That leaves us with the letters that go below the baseline. The g, j, p, y, and z. The area below the baseline is the physical and material world, the subconscious. Did you notice I left out the f? Well the f is the only letter that goes into all three zones so it will show the balance of the three zones.
It also is used to indicate how organized the writer is in their life. One woman whose writing I looked at had an f that was perfectly balanced with the top and bottom loop the same size and brought together at the baseline. I told her she was very organized and her friends laughed. One said her clothes are color coordinated in the closet, the shoes all in boxes and marked as to size and color and so are her kids closets and toys.
