    I find I get a tired hand if I have to write anything lengthy now.

    I had a special left-handed fountain pen at school (something to do with the cut of the nib being mirrored if I remember correctly). It helped a bit.

    My handwriting has always looked like a fly crapped on the paper and walked through it.

    I've never had decent hand writing though and avoid it as much as possible as i have about a 35 degree "trigger finger" on my little finger on my right hand. As I grew up ruined it my joints for the finger so when i write for more than a few seconds i get a horrendous pain in my little finger and the lower part of the hand

    I used to have decent hand writing but it's terrible now due to lack of regular use (work in IT). I write much slower, it takes more concentration and still looks like a drunk person wrote it.

    My handwriting was always described as chicken scratchings at school and at home, it's just as bad now only my hand gets tired more quickly if I have to write for any length

    Depends what I am writing with, I find that my handwriting is neater with a sharp pencil, did try a fountain pen but just ended up with ink everywhere.
