Today is Backwards Day, or so some websites tell me. Not sure what the point of Backwards Days is, but I thought I would use it to practice mirror writing. (Seems logical, right?)
I’ve read that lefties, in particular, are supposed to be good at mirror writing. Or, if you will, writing backwards so that when you put the paper in front of a mirror, you can read the words normally.
I took a pen and paper and wrote quickly without thinking too much about what I was doing to see if I could do it “naturally.” Here’s what I wrote.
Not too bad, I suppose. It kind of looks like my 6 year old’s writing, but it’s not that far off from my own typical chicken scratches. It actually got easier as I wrote the letters and my brain had the chance to adjust.
Have you ever tried mirror writing? Can you do it? I’m curious if it really is easier for lefties.
