Left versus Right handed writing

It is easy to assume that a left handed person would have a back slant to their writing but this is not necessarily true. In fact, the only clue we may have that the writing belongs to a lefty is the right to left T bar. Just notice how you place your paper to get the slant you like. Each of us finds the placement that works best for us. A left handed person has more trouble finding a comfortable pen grip and paper slant and having to write in a notebook or spiral book has to be h***. At least now with gel pens they no longer have to drag their hand through wet ink.
When it comes to the analysis the basics are the same for everyone. Allowance will be made for that backwards T bar because it is a stroke taken for convenience.The rest of the strokes we make are because of our mood, personality and character not because of which hand we use to write.
