Tom Gilb lent me a book about Leonardo Da Vinci a few months ago. Inspired by the great artist's ambidexterity (and something I read in Drive by Dan Pink) I've been learning to write left-handed (I'm right handed, ooops I wrote write there at first). At first I practised my alphabet with separated letters. Then with joined up letters. And more and more recently, with joined up words. It's starting to actually look like writing, and feel smooth when I write.
