After some discussion of English handwriting in another thread, I looked around and saw that the Japanese-handwriting threads were all archived. So I’m starting a new one. Let’s see your hiragana/katakana/kanji writing.
Here’s some modern Japanese pangrams (like the English sentence “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog,” using the full alphabet) for practicing kana.
Here’s a sample of my hiragana using いろは, probably the best-known Japanese pangram, which includes two now-obsolete characters:
Some of my handwriting (shoutout to whoever knows where these sentences are from).
I feel like I’m writing too much based on print kana, and I know the spacing isn’t the best. I haven’t had any practice writing in a grid (too lazy to get grid/square paper). Also, here’s some writing with kanji on a post-it note, even though I’ve had very little kanji practice recently.
Writing and I… we’re not besties. I tried doing it the right way, I really did. Everything ended up looking like a mangled tree. The same mangled tree. What can I say, I have talent… So I went the “copy this off the computer as close as you can because at least this will get you through WK” route. This is one of my cards I made for kanji I mix up a lot.
