I know this is off topic, but I was wondering if anyone else (or knows of anyone) writes with the page of paper turned upside down? I am left-handed and I know that it’s common for lefties to turn their page but I have no idea how I came to write in the extreme version of this. I began turning my page slowly as I noticed that ink from my pen would rub against my hand or I would smudge my work with my pencil in nursery and it just stuck and became more pronounced.

I really love handwriting, love to read and can write pretty neatly. Although 99% of the time, there will be lots of missing letters in words! I have been tested for dyslexia though and I don’t have it.

I have seen some people write like me (two left-handed girls). Just wondering if anyone does it, can you explain if there is a link with ADD and maybe the way my brain is wired for images?

Thank you everyone!
