  • When printing you begin with the slash on the right "/" and then cross with the slash on the left "\" because the tail end of the left slash leads to the following letter.

    If a person thinks about how this is written in cursive, the left slash leads to the following letter, but the reverse slashes are made due to how the are all connected together.

  • There is no right or wrong way.  I'm guessing it probably depends on whether a person is left or right handed.


    For the record I go this way first "\" and I'm right handed.  I have also have plenty of practice because I have an "X" in my name lol.

  • If it produces a recognizable X, what's the problem?
