Handwriting Challenge 2021

This looked like fun!

EDIT: some background - I'm left handed, and my handwriting was TERRIBLE in grade school as I tried desperately to figure out how to write without smudging my ink with my hand. My mom happened to mention this to another parent in our class, who then showed up the next day in my classroom and sat with me for an hour or so, teaching me how to hold my hand and wrist vertically - 90 degrees from the horizontal lines on the page - and I was amazed and am still SO very grateful to her!

Also in grade 11 I took a "speedwriting" course to learn shorthand - and while I don't use much of it, some of the stuff that "stuck" was - not dotting i's or crossing t's - and certain minimalistic ways of forming letters - some of which I still do.

My handwriting is a random mixture of printing and cursive - but I can read it :D

GAMD - Handwriting Challenge 2021

I've kind of neglected the GAMD community lately and thought to have a look at the recent entries, and voila, today was an activity day!

All through my life I've been told by teachers that my handwriting is horrendous. *Shrugs*. I admit when I'm feeling lazy I can write really badly, but I don't think I'm too bad. Heck, we never really had writing lessons, and there was no such thing as "your punishment is to write lines."

The challenge:
— Your name or nickname

— A quote from your favourite novel, short story or poem.

— A fun fact or bit of trivia you know.

— optional: A sentence in a language that is not your mother tongue.
I also took the chance to use different inks and my horde of fountain/ink pens LOL (that I hardly ever use), so thank you for the challenge. I needed 2 page though!
