    I'm a Lefty
    By GM

    Please keep in mind that left-handed people cannot see what they have just written. This is because we write from left to right. If it were in the opposite direction, all you right handers would not be able to see what you wrote.

    I'd like to add also that not all left handers write sloppy. I think this is a common misconception. I have very legible handwriting. One of my students commented one day that I have "typewritter" printing. She meant that my writing is so straight and nearly perfect.

    But I see more leftys with horrible handwriting. I think, in part, it is due to teachers not knowing how to teach the child to position their paper in the opposiite directions and not holding the pencil properly.
