Hand and pen position for business penmanship
« on: December 19, 2017, 11:25:38 AM »
In reading Edward C. Mills book, Modern Business Penmanship on the IAMPETH web site, the author says in the Position of Hand section that "...the wrist is nearly flat, thus bringing the penholder over to the left so that it points about over the right shoulder. (bold is mine).

I always canted my wrist to the right, causing the pen to point somewhere to the right of my shoulder, certainly not over it. I also rested my hand on the side. So I've been doing it wrong all along. Dammit Jim!

I'm not doubting E.C. Mills' instructions, but I would love to hear comments from those here as to their hand and pen positions.

Thank you all in advance.
