As you can guess by my name, I'm a leftie. I find writing Gregg shorthand to be particularly challenging. I need to turn my paper almost completely sideways (counter-clockwise) in order to get the right slant and flow, and even then my m's and n's aren't straight lines because I'm pushing the pen up the page instead of pulling it like righties do. V's and F's give me trouble too. Do any other lefties have any tips? Words like "my" seem to give me particular trouble because of the long line and the loop-de-loop. Same with "I have" -- the 'v' looks too flat.
