    I can type, and that's what I blame for killing my handwriting. Can't spell worth a crap though. Spell check ruined me there.

    You sound like a prime candidate for caligraphy. My handwriting stinks too. But I can do decent caligraphy since I don't rush.

    I've been doing the lessons found here. It's not really helping.
    My block print is quite good but any form of cursive script looks like a seismograph with a seizure disorder.

    I was told by a teacher back in junior high that my writing looked like a drunk schizophernic chicken had walked through a mud puddle and then across the paper. She ruined my poor psyche for life, I still don't write, print everything.

    I have the worst handwritting. I blame my job with the city. Everything is either typed or printed. One reason I may never buy a fine fountain pen is that my poor handwritting skills won't do it justice.
    I love pho long time.

    I'm exactly the same way: horrible handwriting, but I can do some calligraphy. Well, I could. It's been a while since I've done it so maybe that's faded away by now.

    It's obvious he's missing one essential qualification...

    That being - since he admitted his handwriting sucks (and he is therefore flawed) - he obviously doesn't have enough arrogance to become a doctor. At least not a medical doctor - most of the MD's I know are extremely arrogant, almost to the point of "God-Complex", you know?

    I have horrible "doctor's handwriting" and therefor have to print everything. I'm dyslexic to boot. Computerized medical records are my friend.
    I'm not clumsy. It's just that the floor hates me, the table & chairs are bullies, and the wall gets in my way!

    I remember back in grade school that cursive handwriting was supposed to be a quicker, more efficient way of writing by hand. Funny thing, I can print (by hand) faster and more legibly.
