    I will try turning the paper by 90 degrees. My attempts with the pen with from the magazine have not been very good. Realising it is new muscle memory I shall practise and practise more mindfully.

    Delighted you’re looking after us lefties! I’ve found the pens with the magazine difficult to control, so I went to my local independent art shop to try different nibs. I found a smaller felt tip style brush nib (i.e. the sort that are not individual fibres) easier to control. Because it’s a smaller nib my writing is smaller, but that makes practising the basic up and down strokes easier too. As my muscle memory builds I hope to find larger brush nibs for larger lettering areas easier to control.

      Thanks, Sandra. It’s good to hear that you have found the right pen to build up your skills and your muscle memory. Once you’re super comfortable with that pen, working with larger nibs should be much simpler
