Looking really good in terms of formed letters. Now start spacing them out more. It will be easier to read. Paper is cheap.  ;D

The lines that appear vertically on the left edge of the papers are particularly good. Terrific progress in such a short time.

Thank you @AAAndrew.  I was trying for a compressed form, and practing for a more smoother connection.  And yes, the grid paper abosorbs so much ink and bleed crazy.  The Esterbrook 920 with the upturn nib EF was graceful.

Thank you @AnasaziWrites.  Sticking with forms and using only the horizontal lines as guide, my hqnds we more freely expressed.

Can I go to book 2 Artistic Writing yet?

Thank you Erica for the encouragement.

I will take a few more weeks with this script before moving forward....and getting comfortable with an oblique.  So strange using an oblique, it's like learning a new language.  It looks strange, and feels strange.  It forces me to use only Whole Arm Movement which throws the who progress into the trash...but I think I found a way to use some finger movements after 10 pages of only drills.

Here's today progress.
