I'm normally impressively private if I'm learning anything new. I'll hide away until I know I've got it perfect. Well, up to now that is. Apart from a brief flirtation when I was in my teens, calligraphy hasn't been something I've ever been that interested in. Then I started thinking. (Which isn't always bad, who knew?) I got the gear and started practicing, started trying to see if my handwriting could be improved at all.
