Calligraphy:

1. hold the stick firmly.

2. be sufficiently fearless about applying pressure. (Personal opinion:  stickly characters look terrible. They pale of inexperience, uncertainty, and childishness.)

3. Breathe and be calm.

4. don’t rush.

5. have direction and deliberateness in every stroke. (Wishy-washy flailing-abouts will get you slapped.)

6. use enough ink.
