@SMK -- of course.  I know this must take such a great amount of your time.  Whenever you get them up, whether it be a month or a year, I and your numerous other pupils will be here!  Thank you again for all of your time, instruction, and guidance, and your willingness to share your tremendous skill with us.

@ash0kgiri Thanks!!  I've let my practice go lately, so need to get back into a regular cadence again.

@SMK I know you must be terribly busy, but any thoughts on when you might post majuscles?   :D

I haven't found a good way to practice while my kiddos (ages 2 and 4) are awake, so I regulate it to nap time and once they are in bed for the night...

Thanks, Salman!! Appreciate your guidance and patience! As much as I love the feel of the 66EF nib, I couldn't control it well, so will stick with the nib I switched to. Looking forward to continuing on with the majuscles when you post them!

Hi Salman, I am trying out a new ink and a new nib & experimenting with less shading. Do you see an improvement in width consistency? (Apologies for the lack of centering and the shaky f's). Also, any tips on squaring the tops / bottoms of letters? I feel like it still looks blobby but I'm unsure of how to improve it (it always seems like I'm getting the paper too wet from the ink). Thanks!

@SMK Thanks, Salman!  I do have a Hunt 101 in my collection, so will give that a try & will get my hands on a 303, as well.  The flange on my current pen holder is only fitted for the EF66, but I gave my husband a strong hint that I wanted an Hourglass universal pen holder for my upcoming birthday (strong hint = email with the subject line "birthday" and a link to the holder).   ;D

Thank you, Ashok and Salman!  As always, I appreciate the feedback.  I will keep practicing, with a particular focus on the items that were mentioned.

Regarding weight, do you think I would be better served by a different nib (in addition the more consistency in my strokes)?  Or do you think it has nothing to do with nib & it's 100% consistency?  What I'm trying to say is that I'm using an EF66 and wondering if I might be able to achieve consistency more easily if I were to switch to a less flexible nib?

Hi Salman, I'm back! :)

Attached is a new attempt. Not perfect (something really strange going on with slant and join with the i-n of "going," badly shaped d in "standing," etc). But hopefully an improvement over my last attempt.

Look forward to your feedback.  Thanks!

Thank you, Salman!  Yes, I'm always in a hurry, so I will slow it down and tackle with patience like you suggested!  I appreciate the detailed feedback.

Thanks, Salman! I will work on the sentence (and glad there are no "x's" in it) ;)

Wondering if you are planning on doing a majuscles series, as well? Would love to continue on after I've mastered the sentence :)
