Last month(ish), someone commented on a post showing two very different writing styles. (I can’t find the post, sigh.) One was cramped, one took up a lot of space. I’d see the post before, but never taken it to heart.
This time, I paid attention. I’ve been writing on every line in my book, to save space, and trying to make the vertical strokes just a bit taller than the space between the lines.
I finally tried skipping lines. That extra white space is making a big difference, even though my vertical strokes haven’t changed size. Part of it might be because I don’t have to worry about bits of previous lines interfering. I think, though, it’s the open space. It just feels better.
So, thanks for bringing that article to the top!
