I learned cursive, like everyone else, and then learned to type, and then learned drafting, and then learned comic strippering. I can technically still write cursive, but only in a ’doctor’s handwriting’ crippled sort of way that’s neither faster nor better. Sorry if you don’t agree with the blotting story. It’s what I was taught when I learned to ink and draw with dip pens. And it’s technically accurate information, even if it’s not the actual impetus for the creation of cursive writing. I still think it’s the actual impetus, of course. It’s what I learned.
