Mechanical pencil on white printer paper--
This is what my "nice" "printing" looks like. I used to have a separate "cursive" hand, but now they're just totally blended together. Notice the weird shortcut that I use for the -ing combination. Also, at some point, I just became incapable of writing a lowercase D in the middle of a word. Well, mostly.
This is what my printed italics look like, as one would use for emphasis in the middle of a printed sentence.
This is what my messy note-taking handwriting looks like. Most of my handwritten drafts look like this.
This is my real (first name) signature--Lauren.
No, I am somehow not a doctor.
This is what my pen name signature looks like, which I probably shouldn't give you in easily-abusable image format, but it's not like someone couldn't scan in one of the books I've signed, so--
You can tell I'm not used to signing this because some of the letters are actually distinct.
(No, I did not use a line guide. My lines are somehow always this straight.)
There is also probably something to be said from a handwriting analysis POV about the fact that I sign w/ large, flourishing initial letters and then get lazy. Maybe that I'm a big-picture person, or that I have a big ego, or that I start projects w/ enthusiasm but rarely finish. All of these things are probably true.
