I am left handed.
A stroke from left to right is, depending on the writing utensil, inconvenient to impractical, since, instead of pulling the tip across the paper, I push, which doesn't work as well.
This isn't such a big issue with modern ballpoint pens, but especially with things like fountain pens, left-to-right strokes can result in scratching, jumping and ultimately, slow and ugly handwriting.
As a result, when writing Latin letters, I tend to write them my own way (as opposed to what I have learned in elementary school), intuitively minimizing left-to-right strokes.
With Japanese handwriting, for good reason, there is a much bigger emphasis on correct stroke order and direction, especially with kanji.
My question is, would it be a problem to reverse all left-to-right strokes in handwriting? How is this handled in Japanese schools? If anybody here is left-handed, what is your approach?
