 8 tips for faster writing

Always keep your writing small and close together; you will write faster because your pen spends less time on the paper.

Don’t press too hard; you will become more physically tired.

Don’t use capital letters; block capitals are much slower to produce.

Don’t write too close to the edges of the paper; this prevents faster writing because you have to slow down near the edges.

If you’re using an A4 notepad, fold the page in half lengthways and write down one side and then the other; because you have less space you will automatically write less.

As you near the bottom of a page, start to push the paper up and then flip over as you reach the end.

Use your non-writing hand to fold over the bottom corner of your pad to enable a quick flip (see above) and hence faster writing!
