    don't think of calligraphy as handwriting. It's just a different form of art

    Calligraphy was traditionally done with a slanted table, this maybe why you're having a problem, not to mention many years of practice could also help.

    You call that "bad handwriting"? You haven't seen my brother's! I could read yours pretty well - but I'm used to deciphering disastrous notes and shopping lists from both my brother and my mom 😂
