Where I can find examples of Chinese characters in pen or pencil, not brush?

I am trying to learn how to write Chinese characters properly. The problem is that all online examples I found are that of a brush (where each stroke gets wider or narrower as it progresses). ex: http://www.learnchin...9/04/%E7%9A%84/ but my goal is not to master the art of calligraphy!

Are there any websites that have a list of common Chinese characters written in pen/pencil?

You might be interested in a website I created: Hanzi Grids

It allows you to create pdf files of practice grids that can contain any characters you want, and the paid version has a couple of pen handwriting fonts that you can use (see here for examples of the types of files you can generate).

I wrote another post here, that details how you can use this to create your own 'handwritten' versions of any document you like for reading/writing practice.

If you search for "handwriting" you can find a number of handwriting samples from users on this forum. That way you get different perspectives.

This is a great question for a language-exchange partner. Just ask them to write some stuff for you. I asked my friend for some handwriting samples, and she proceeded to write 我真不想起床 without lifting the pen more than twice. Blew my mind.

This is one of the relevant topics. It's more about learning to read handwriting initially, but I think it gets all mixed up. Try also searching for, eg, 硬笔书法 on Google images.
