Early days for me in Notehand, still learning new alphabetic characters. Most the reading and writing is going smoothly and is a pleasure to learn. However, while doing the writing tests, I sometimes get stuck trying to decide whether to place the vowel (in this case, “e”) above or below its neighboring consonants.
For example, in the word, “read”, the “e” is written as a small loop above the continuous line formed by the “r” and “d” forms. It’s a counterclockwise loop. But in the word, “meter”, the “e” is written below the angle formed by the “m” and “t” forms as a clockwise loop.
Each approach makes total sense to me. It’s the easiest and fastest way to write each word, no question. But in such cases, I often have to pause in my writing and check the key to see which way it goes. Does this eventually come naturally, or is there a specific rule I’ve overlooked?
