    1) It's better to practice and perfect one style rather than go through a bunch of different styles every time you do a new piece right? It'd be better to have on good style rather than several mediocre ones.

    2) Should you do a new word every piece you do, or should you stick with your writer name? A new word means that you'll have new letters to work with, new positioning and composing of your piece, etc.....Your name over and over again will be more familiar and besides that's what you're trying to get out in public right? Which would be overall better?

    Thanx in advance guys....

    OH GOD

    This WILL get closed. But:

    1) This isn't a science. It isn't art. Do whatever you have fun doing, at whatever times you want. Enjoy it. If you stop enjoying it, quit.

    2) See #1

    1) theres no such thing as style anymore, just make shure you put as much arrows in youre piece as possible.

    2) every combination of letters has already been used. try just using numbers and sanscrit characters in different funky ways.

    no problem dude i'm here for you

    Ugh my question was probably worded too ambiguously. Oh well, yea I have fun doing what I do and I practice a lot, I just needed some clarification on how I could make my practicing more efficient in addition to the actual labor of it. Oh well, let this thread slip, see ya guys.
