Tall tall words written above the line, has anyone tried it?

Words like improve start on the line, then go down 1-1/2 spaces. Has anyone experimented with writing them a bit higher, so that the first downstroke rest on the line, rather than the m?

  1. This is a technique used by the Pitman method, usually position represents vowel sounds, I say, if this works for you doesn’t slow down your flow &  hinder your speed go for it!!!

  2. I personally don't do it, because usually I abbreviate long words. (For example, in "improve", I just write m-p-r). That's why the Abbreviating Principle was created. The important thing is being able to read what you wrote, and not hesitate when you write the outline in a different position.
