Trying to be a Left-Handed Calligrapher

This is my Day 1 of the class... I hope I improve! I also took another calligraphy class on here but haven't really applied much as it didn't give that much instruction. I think my calligraphy journey will be 90% practice and 10% copying other people's styles until I find one of my own.

I'm left-handed so getting the slant going is a huge challenge for me!! I have moved my arm and paper but can't get a comfortable, natural feeling slant.


I decided not to worry about a slant. I like my writing with a moving baseline. I've been practicing at least 30 minutes a day (I have two kids so that's quite a feat!) and am really getting my own style. I experiment daily with different letter shapes  and am finding my favorites!
