Direction of strokes

Posted by mrdtait December 29, 2007 in the Group General Discussion.

maybe a strange question but when drawing each stroke which direction do you move your pen/pencil..?


On some fonts they have a little 'lip' or a fat bit on the end so the simplest example I can give is with 一. With some fonts this lip is on the right side so based on the assumption that this lip will be always at the start or the end of the stroke I can then write in the 'correct' direction. 


So simply what I want to know is for 一 do I go left to right or right to left?
