For the last couple of years about the only thing I write in cursive with a pen are checks. Otherwise it has all been keyboard typing. Writing anything at length with a pen is like relearning how to write. Fortunately, like riding a bike, it comes back quickly.
Writing with a fountain pen brings it to a different level. More arm, less wrist and fingers and different angle. Or something.
Which makes me wonder if writing with a fountain pen, might be good exercise for preventing carpal tunnel? Dunno.
