Somethings about Cursive writing:
The term cursive derives from Middle French cursif from Medieval Latin cursivus, which literally means running. In the Arabic, Syriac, Latin, and Cyrillic alphabets, many or all letters in a word are connected (while others must not), sometimes making a word one single complex stroke. Steven Roger Fischer suggests that based on finds at Saqqara, the reed pen might well have been used for writing on parchment as long ago as the First Dynasty or about 3000 BC.
Cursive handwriting was originally conceived and invented as a calligraphic art form in the 16th century for the design of special greeting cards. From this writing, the joined-up Latin source writing has developed.

Handwriting is a complex and major achievement of the brain that connects the language center, the motor area, cognition, and other areas.
