Different strokes for different blokes 😏 (Or folks) - which basically means different things appeal to different people. I actually love that phrase when it comes to calligraphy, a) cos we make actual strokes, and b) because there isn't a one-size-fits-all when it comes to this art.
We all have different sized hands, different grips, apply different pressure, prefer certain tools, get results in different ways... And that's totally ok!
I used to be obsessed with doing things the 'right' way (which in my head = the way the pros did it) but eventually I realised I could do things my own way and get the same, or better, (in my eyes) results. Coming to that realisation brings you so much creative freedom!
Is there something you do differently to others that works really well for you? Let us know! It may just help someone else 😊
