    A good ink pen with a chiselled nib not a ball type nib. Try lots of practice on squared paper to get the length of the letters and loops uniform. In MICROSOFT WORD there is a font called French Script. Type some words in this font and try to copy it.

    Practice, look at different types of handwriting and see what suits you best, what you like. Experiment with different hand postions and different types of pens. Some write better than others and will influence your handwriting.

    I find the two most important tools for good handwriting are: 1) Stroke order. This refers to order and even direction of how you draw your letters or characters. When learning to write letters/characters at all (such as a new language's characters like Russian, Japanese, Arabic, etc...) you first learn HOW TO DRAW the character. In most early writing books for English, you should notice arrows along the letters indicating which way the pencil moved when drawing each line. 2) Mirroring/Matching/Tracing. The other most contributing factor that can be affected BY stroke order is the correct appearance of the character. When writing, try to make your characters angles and curves match as exactly as possible to the handwriting font you wish to have/emulate. {{If the capital letter "R" has a big fat upper curve, then make sure your "R" has plenty of space inside that 'bubble' the curve makes. If that "R" has a small space in between the upright 'back' leg and the diagonal leg, make sure your "R" doesn't connect the two legs. In other words, don't be lazy! And exaggerate if you have to at first.}} What you want is something that you can read without stopping. Simply put, your eyes should actually FEEL good reading it. Your head should say "Okay, words. And I know which ones." When you have bad handwriting your head says "Eww, lines and scratches. Oh? Words? Okay, which ones? Got half of them. What are the rest? I'm tired. Leave me alone."
