Does Your Own Handwriting Give You Another Variant?

In reviewing handwritten notes for an article, I looked at the way I had written the last name "Butler." If I had not known what the word was, I really might have been inclined to think it was "Beetler."

I remember a time when someone told me that they way I wrote my last name made it look like it was "Neice."

Maybe if you are not having luck with spelling variants, try writing sloppy and have someone else read it!
