I just worked out a symbol for when folks want my autograph. Not my signature. My autograph.

How do you not know how to write in cursive? I learned that at about 7 or 8 years old. You should learn. It's fun, and lends a sense of dignity on paper.

It's been my New Year's Resolution to sign with an X for the whole of February. It's going fine so far.

I tried briefly to develop a distinctive scrawled signature, as I have a 9 letter last name. Alas, I am compelled to form each and every letter! It is quite legible.

My signature looks like how we were taught to write cursive.. It's legible but looks like a 3rd grader signed it

I sometimes fight sentences announcing myself in signature spaces. As long as I do it consistently, it's a signature, right?

my signature is both ugly and illegible. but I can't really change it. it just sort of came about that way.

My signature's a work of gorgeous art, but legible? Barely.

Mine used to be quite poor but I've really work to have a readable signature. I agree your name so very important thing if you sign your name to something you should standby it.

Good morning. Being in a business where you have to sign things I would imagine your's is quite lovely.

Yes, and it should be. A person's name matters. Everything else is so de-personalized, but your name, your ability to read and write and be known for who you are- yet another awesome privilege we take for granted.

Thanks, EB! Good morning!

I'm in the same boat. I said yes, because the first 4 letters (before it devolves into a squiggle) make it very easy to assume the rest of my 6 letter name.

Mine starts legible and drops off. So should I have answered yes or no? I answered yes since my first name (mostly) is legible.

Though, on a developmentally bright spot, I gave up on the ideals of having hearts and smiley faces incorporated into all my dotted letters.

I thought everyone (though mostly girls) developed their handwriting to fit their personality. My 7th grade logic told me this. I didn't realize until college that a lot of people just slap some lines on a page and call it writing. My 7th grade self would be horrified

Mine isn't real legible to start off with but those digital signature pads could turn a Monet into a preschool art project.

Mine is similar. My married and maiden names start with the same letter and have tall letters in the same place, both are completely illegible and I really didn't have to change much once I got married.

Mine is just a bunch of scribbles. Lol.

Work on improving it in your spare time. I completely changed my signature when I was around 30 because I didn't like my signature, either. I'm much happier now, and it didn't take me long at all to make the change.

Nice workaround. I've never seen that done before.

I had the same experience. And then around 30yo, I worked in an artistic environment and noticed how others I worked with had an extra flare when signing their names, and I began to work on my signature again until it was completely new and improved.

Cursive *and* all capital letters? Interesting. Especially since I rarely use cursive for capital letters.

My signature is very legible. My husband's isn't. Sometimes when he does the digital signature for purchases, he just puts a smiley face.

Haha, nope. It's only two capital cursive letters, but it's impossible to decipher. XD

My signature is in cursive and all capital letters. It's legible, but I think it's easier for me bc I only have 7 letters total in my signature.

My last name is difficult to write fast. I have a lot of e's l's d's and o's all piled together, I gave up and now it's a drawn out squiggly line for most of it.

Yes, because my middle school experience taught me that girls had beautiful writing. Girls really perfected their writing to have a personality. When I got married I practiced my additional last name until it was flowing and pretty.
