@AnasaziWrites thank you for sharing this fine article!  Would love to see your Spencerian rendering of the "steal" quote.  ;D

Happy to oblige, although I'm pretty shaky today, but I have a couple of pieces of scrap paper from a recent project on my desk that need using up, so here are two versions, one at x-ht 1/10th inch, the second at 1/16th inch. I'm posting these less than excellent bits of writing to encourage you and all others to post what they can do, and not wait 'till you think it's perfect or the best you can do. Give it a go.

Bravo! My preference is the 1/10th height. You can see all the beauty and symmetry.  :-*

Well! I was pretty sure you knew I was just pulling your leg ... but, yeah, I was secretly hoping you'd take the bait!  ;D   Thank you for sharing it!

Rough and/or shaky, your writing is an inspiration.  I learn a lot examining the bits and pieces which help inform my practice and understanding.  Recently, too, I am recognizing and understanding that even those members demonstrating excellence in their product all had to go through a learning process.  Yes, this is very encouraging! 

Wishing you joys,
