OK, late reply. I guess I'm even more back in my mail than Sally :)) . But I needed to reply because this concerns me quite a lot :)) . Personally, I'm left-handed, and yet I find writing kinesthetically extremely pleasant, much more than typing (which easily wears out my hands). I can write for hours, and even if my hand is numb afterwards, it's a nice numbness (just like feeling tired after two hours of heavy sports is one of the most delightful things I've ever felt :)) ). And writing with a fountain-pen, despite the difficulties of it due to my left-handedness, is just delightful! :)) So I doubt that being left- or right-handed has anything to do with how you feel about writing. It's all a matter of personal preference :)) . Just my two Eurocents :)) . Christophe Grandsire. You need a straight mind to invent a twisted conlang.
