What would be considered 'other'?

A scrawl that even I have trouble reading sometimes. Though it's fun to write in capitals from time to time

The illegible style. Whenever I write something by hand it's an adventure.

Most of the handwriting I do is notes, and those have to be taken so quickly I have no time for it to be anything more then chicken scratch. :P In fact, I think I have lost the ability to decent handwriting since I left high school.

I write small, with a mix of regular and cursive depending on the letter and what comes before and after it.

I have my own writing style...I learned to write "backwards" I mean, there is a certain form to write down every single letter, for example beginning from the top and going down...well I do the opposite to that, I dont draw the letters in the order it should be, but in my own twisted order

I use too write in cursive many years ago sometime in high schoolbut afterI became so hasty it'snothing but a mess now. And my guns make my armsfatigue quickly so I can't write cursive while standing since gravity makes it uncomfortable.The length of my arms makes it too difficult to do it while resting my elbows.

I always print. I haven't written in cursive (regularly, anyway) since the 5th grade. Cursive looks nice, but it takes too long and is harder to read.

Most of the time, cursive. But I use both.

I dont use any specific type on purpose. I just write the way it comes out.

The only thing I can say is that its not cursive. Although I do write some letters within a word united.

Like when when a iota is after an epsilon. Or an upsilon after an omikron.

Based on what I just wrote on some scratch paper: Very curvy, erratic spacing between words, erratic spacing between letters, erratic spacing within the letters, some connection between letters, inconsistent size of letters. Basically, my handwriting is written quickly, but still eligible, somehow. So, is that Regular or Other?

:o It seems cursive is less popular here on OT.

As for me though, I write it cursive.

Yeah. The text here would be regular printing since no letters are connected to each other whereas in cursive the letters in the word connect.

I print my writing, although if I write a little faster it looks like some awesome print-cursive hybrid. =P

The last time I remember writing regularly was when I was first learning to spell words.

I write in print. I don't get why in elementary school they were so hardcore on teaching everyone cursive. Besides the times when people have to write their signatures, I see almost no one writing in cursive these days.

Even then, no one uses cursive for their signatures. It's all scribbles that look like they MIGHT be letters. =P

I write in cursive because it's quicker. It is nearly illegible for anyone but me though :P

Oh I have to write in CAPITALS for my boss as he can't comprehend anything else

I never use cursive. My regular handwriting is barely readable as it is.
