    A combo, which is shameful.
    My Arabic script is beautiful, and better than English, not sure why.
    Perhaps because I write in Arabic by hand, but most English is now by keyboard. :shrug:

    I use print unless it's a signature for something.

    Actually, thanks to the computer, sometimes I go so long without actually writing that my hand feels weird when I try to write a sentence. :frown1:

    A combination of both does not mean sometimes one or sometimes the other. It means that some letters in some words are script and some are printed.

    Script is usually easier when doing that. You must have amazing pee muscles.

    Print. The last time I practiced script/cursive was back in Primary School.

    I sometimes change the fonts I write in, and I've just begun writing in something akin to Old English recently.

    My mother only wrote in script. She did not know how to print. I guess she only was taught that way.

    My sister only prints, but it is chicken scratch.

    I am a sloppy writer, but I can write neatly when I apply myself.

    My handwriting is dreadful. Looks like I wrote it with my feet, lol.

    I tend to handwrite, but only because I like the look of it. When I print, I find that it appears to be more urgent looking... like I was in a rush.

    I print always. Even when I write in cursive I disjoin the letters.

    Handwriting is difficult for me as I now do it so rarely. My hand tires very quickly.

    Combo these days. I remember teaching myself to write in cursive long before it was taught in school because I thought it was the coolest thing.

    I like my handwriting. Mixture of print and script. I also appreciate all kinds of writing because of the educational materials that I work with.

    print...and i also tend to write in all capital letters...i think that's a trait passed down from my father.

    yet strangely, i rarely capitalize on the internet.

    I write in print...my cursive looks like a Doctor writing a prescription on acid! (NO ONE COULD READ THAT!) My internet messages also seem to contain a lot of uncomfortable "smiley's" - more than the typical hererosexual male might use...It don't make me a bad person!! I'm FROM NORTH DAKOTA for Christs' sake! Gimme a break? (old school "smiley" language here! :))

    Mine is a combo of boyish print and girly cursive. It shines when i write with a fine tipped pen and looks horrible when i write with a ballpoint pen.

    I've gotten a lot of compliments and criticism when it comes to my handwriting. I always found it odd.
