Very nice lettering!

As a beginner, I try to be conscious of my grip and the pressure Iím applying. I love the adjustable hourglass but as with any holder after awhile the wood starts to feel slippery. Iíve resorted to wrapping thread and rubber bands around the front part to help my grip. Iíve also purchased the Century 5/8ís holder but it seems a bit too thick. Maybe with more practice it will start to feel natural.

Thank you!

We do what we have to,  to get results. How it looks on paper is all that really matters.
I too prefer thinner pens. I sometimes think that this may have something to do with my earliest writing learning in Scotland in the early 1940s with flexible dip nibs in holders which were pencil thin.  :)
