Hello Pauline!
Welcome to the SignWriting List. We really enjoyed your British  
Fingerspelling Christmas card, which will remain on the web:

SignWriting Cards


SignWriting in Great Britain

It will be great if you have the health to do some more  
SignWriting...Literature is needed in both BSL and ISL...;-)

Actually Literature is needed in all signed languages!

Regarding the left handed issues...Charles is correct. People who are  
left-handed signers write left handed signing sometimes, but some are  
able to write either, and I know I am able to, if I am writing a  
person who is left handed on a video...

So I would just relax and write whichever feels the best for  
you...and reading either is fine reading a left-handed  
document sign from the page just fine, and don't even notice the fact  
that it is left-handed...

Generally we publish right-handed signing, but either is fine too...

So welcome!

Val ;-)
