Step 1: Find a style you like
Decide how you'd like your handwriting to look. Study cursive samples or look at different fonts.

Step 2: Create a sample sentence
Write a sample sentence at the top of a sheet of paper, carefully emulating the writing style you've chosen.
*Tip: Print the sentence in a chosen font and tape it to the top of a lined sheet of paper.

Select a pen or pencil that feels good in your hand. Consider thickness, grip, and how well it glides across a page.
*Tip: Don't grip your instrument too tightly.

Step 4: Practice
Copy the sentence, again and again. Practice individual letters to master the details of that writing style.
*Tip: Keep your neck, shoulders, and arms relaxed while you practice.

Step 5: Pick a new sentence
Pick a new sentence with different letters, and practice copying that sentence.
