I had a fanatical professor of orchestration in college, who required our handwritten parts to look as if they were pristine as something machine-made. All vertical barlines, everything ending at the end of a page, noteheads filling the entire space, that sort of thing. The lefties in class had to put everything on the page backwards to keep from smearing the ink.

That's a great anecdote, and thank you for the article.
