One of the things I found difficult when I started learning Gregg a few months back was the italic slope of the characters. It felt very unnatural, and a bit "flowery".
Then I came across a note in one of the books that said you should write at the same slope as your regular handwriting. Well, my handwriting doesn't slope at all, so I started writing Gregg that way - that is, with Bs and Fs looking like parentheses and a J as a stroke going straight down. I found it much easier to write, and I could finally tell the difference between T and CH.
I wondered whether other people write their shorthand at a different angle from the "official" Gregg version. Does anyone write it with a backward slant?
