Finding every opportunity to practising to write in a calligraphy style is a great way to keep your skill alive and refining your technique. You can find lots of opportunities to do this, for example, when writing out notes, writing a shopping list, a menu, a task list, even doing a crossword puzzle or Arrow Words! Anything that needs handwriting can be written in a calligraphy style. You will find that your calligraphy will look better with time and it will become second nature and you may also find that you can write calligraphy faster than before.
In the example shown below, is an example of how you can use calligraphy in everyday situations, such as a simple shopping list.
The YouTube clip shown illustrates how to write a short shopping list written in Gothic style, using black ink and a broad nibbed calligraphy pen. Of course, if you are in a rush, then it is not practical to do this. I used a Manuscript calligraphy pen and the nib size used was a 4B or 2.8, which is one of the broader sized nib. You can write out a list of anything you like, such as a grocery list, things to do or other lists in general.
