"The Illustustration ... will show you better than words the correct position. The position of the body shouldb e easly and comofrtable. Lean slightly on the arms, but see that the chest does not touch the edge of the table. Keep the back straight.
Be sure to keep the wrist and ball of hand from touching the paper or desk. My own hand glides upon the nails of the third and fourth fingers, as shown in the cuts, but some writers find it easier to let the hand glide upon the knuckle of the fourth finger.
Nearly all your work will be done at a desk, but as you will sometimes be required to write while standing, some practice should be done in that position, the muscle of the forearm resting against the side.
When sitting, but without a desk, the tablet is held upon the knee, with the muscle of the forearm resting upon the thihgh or against the side."
Debbi, thanks for the photos and info on handwriting technique. Interesting to see the photo of the left-handed overhand writer. That gentleman must have developed a careful technique not to smudge the ink, as overhanders usually drag across the page. Keeping the wrist off the paper and supporting the pen with the large forearm muscles and the two smallest fingers was standard penmanship technique then.
Thanks again from the great photos and information!
