Direction of the letter A when standing alone

Is the letter “a”, and “e” for that matter, to be written clockwise or counter-clockwise?

  1. Interesting! I would have guessed the opposite, on the basis that the default direction for those loops is clockwise when they are connected to straight letters such as d or m (at either end).

    But your explanation makes sense, too.

    Is “i” (the broken circle) also written anti-clockwise when standing alone, then?
