Hello WaniKani Community,
Saida・犀蛇・彩妥・灑懿妥 here. November 2018 I started attending calligraphy classes near Leiden in the Netherlands, but I have had to stop taking them. So now I have to practice at home, by myself!
To try to get some regularity in my practice, I decided to start writing all the kanji from every level. A level per week. I recently reset from level 51 to 31 to 1, so I am hopeful I will be able to keep up the pace going forward!
I will be writing mostly 楷書. This is the most basic (most legible) style of writing, I think. Important points are whether strokes are written in correct stroke order, and have the correct shape, i.e. like a sweep (はらい) instead of a stop (とめ) at the end.
For information about what the strokes should look like, I will be using this website: http://www.kenjisugimoto.com/shuji/index.html and occasionally a google search.
For information on stroke order, I will be using jisho.org.
I’ll post some more information about my tools and such at some point.
Questions, comments, own experiences very much welcomed!
