For me, it was because I wanted to learn to do something the right way.
I wanted to re-learn cursive, but the modern resources I found seemed like they weren’t really there to teach handwriting. They were merely accessories to a reading curriculum.
When I found the Palmer Method, I knew it was what I was looking for. I had finally found a resource that was focused on handwriting for handwriting’s sake. The Palmer Method was created in a time when handwriting truly mattered and I wanted to learn in that traditional context.
As time went on, learning something that was unique and “right” became less important to me, but I developed new motivations that kept me interested in traditional penmanship.
