Ruled vs. Unruled

Maybe this has been asked before. I don’t recall.

I was wondering what everybody’s take is with regards to writing their shorthand on ruled or unruled paper?

Just about every video on YouTube and elsewhere on the Internet it seems that everyone writes on unruled paper.

Anyone care to chime in?

  1. My recommendation is to write on ruled paper until one has dominated the system completely. The lines help with the proportions. This is no different than learning to write longhand. Once one is fluent, you can write on any kind of paper as long as you can read it.

    I can also say that in many videos in the internet the proportions and placement of the shorthand characters are out of whack, so don't follow that guide.
