I see... You leave me no choice in this. Commence stratospheric airship bombardment. Suffer no left hander to live.
Beat that.

That's all fine and good, but please try to avoid their leader Janus (we need him to play bass for us). lol

We could tie his right hand downe and force him to become left-handed. 
That's what the nuns at the Catholic School my dad attended when he was a kid did to him to get him to write right-handed. Fortunately they had given up the practice by the time I start going to school there.

A note on writing for lefties: I've been an artist and story writer since I was a small child, and would often hate getting all variety of ink, charcoal, and graphite smudges along the side of my hand from brushing it along the paper. So, I turned the paper a quarter clockwise and continued writing in a sort of downward motion. Think Japanese, only the letters are still horizontal when the paper is turned upright again. I've known several other lefties who have used this method to avoid repeatedly washing their hands immediately after writing, and am curious if any of you lot know what I'm talking about. I've recently started using a quill as well and this method seems to work fine.

One airship versus ten-to-fifteen percent of the world.  I like the odds.  Wink

That's all fine and good, but please try to avoid their leader Janus (we need him to play bass for us). lol

My militaristic sense of honor compels me to stay behind with my left-handed brethren.  Tongue

Besides, he'll never get rid of all of us.  How is he going to tell us apart from the right-handed if he's bombing us from several thousand feet above?  It's not as if we're wearing oversized bullseye target top hats with fifty-foot-wide brims on our heads.  Grin

The losing one.  Grin

I've done that before, actually!  My more common method, however, is to write above my left hand instead of to its right side.  It may seem a tad awkward at first, but it has served me well.

I turn the paper about 1/8th when I'm writing with either hand. Doesn't seem to stop me getting ink on my hands, fingers and occasionally up my arms  Roll Eyes Drawing and painting is less of an issue though - I draw/paint left to right with my right hand, and right to left with my left (but not simultaneously!)

I actually had to stop and pick up a pen to figure out how I write.  Not something one thinks about normally.  I too write above my left hand so I don't smudge.  Something learned over many many years.  I paint the same way.

Countessa,
Might I inquire: what (subject) do you paint?  What is your style?  Oil, watercoulour, acrylic?

Dear Vela of course you may inquire. 

I paint on occasion when I have been inspired.  It is not very often and I do it only for my amusement and not professionally.  The last I did in acrylic.  I did a set of three small canvases - two with different raven heads and one with an old fashioned full moon with face.  They grace a wall in our kitchen sitting area.
My youngest is a more regular painter and she loves acrylics.  When I get inspired I usually ask to use some of her supplies as she has a stocked workspace in her room.
