I think I'm finally getting somewhere with this m.

I expect things will start getting faster once I actually settle on a few standard curves and terminals, but for the time being, where my modus operandi is trying to get down on paper an idealized version of some hazy idea in my head, emphasis on idealized, it's going kind of slow. Making crazy fonts is fun, (and easy) and making vaguely pretty fonts based on historical sources is reasonable, since I have lots of prior solutions to look to, but I'm trying to strike out here and figure out what it would look like if someone tried to actually make an attractive typeface that was founded on the random stroke-order and pen-stress and ligation peculiarities of my handwriting. (as opposed to how sloppy my handwriting actually is)
