This might also be another journaling worry. Do you think your handwriting isn’t all that pretty? Are you self conscious? Don’t be! A journal is your private space where you can practice. It is the place to forgive yourself for not being a calligrapher. You don’t have to be! The point about handwriting is that it conveys a lot of information. When you revisit your journal in the future, the way you wrote will tell a lot about your state of mind, were you in a hurry? Were you bored or totally focused? Your handwriting will tell.
