    If you feel your cursive is not easily read, use block capitals. The mail office machinery prefers that.

    - especially for the post code/zip code. If the sorting machine can't read that the letter will have to be sorted manually.

    Incidentally, it's "writing". A playwright* [ = "maker", as in 'cartwright', 'wheelwright', 'shipwright'...] writes plays, but the person who writes letters is a letter writer.

    * this spelling may be specific to British English; I'm sure I've seen 'playwrite'.
