I learned a couple of things in the process of making this page. 

Never get greedy with your ink; Always underestimate how much you have left in your nib. 

Never assume ink is dry. 

Posture is of course, important, but something that I continually need to remind myself of. 

It’s precisely keeping extraneous strength out of your grip that allows you to make hairlines. Much like tai chi, it’s important to relax in the right way.

It’s speed and mindfulness that allow for smoothness in curves.

Keeping all of these points in mind until they become second nature will take a lot of work but I gotta keep pressing on.
