# mirror-writing using non-dominant hand easier with closed eyes

I've learnt to mirror-write as shown below using my non-dominant hand. One of the things I've observed is that it's a lot easier when I do it with my eyes closed. For e.g. if my eyes were closed, I'd be able to write faster and with less mirror-mistakes (writing regular b - b instead of mirrored b - d)

Is there any existing research that can explain this?

• i feel the same thing too, when i use my non dominant hand it is really fluent to write while when using the dominant hand it becomes almost impossible to write without mistakes, there is some connection in the way the motor neuron transmit data and interpret it about writing. And also it took me a while (5-10 min) then i became fluent in reading the mirror words i wrote. But i haven't been able to find a answer to it or whether it happens with everybody, still searching on google, let you know if i find something. EDIT: got the pdf file of research over this, if you wanna read it the is here. – Utkarsh Gupta Dec 13 '17 at 14:29
