What should I do?

I was planing to write "עלי" in the same line but there is a "ך" on the line on top.
Should I write a long "מ"?
Is the "ך" ok?

  1. erase the foot of the chaf and 1/3 of it's gag, and the top of the lamed, then extend the lamed and reform it, finish the chaf 2/3 of its original size [width]. Then you have plenty place to write צומו עלי without a problem. The ending will be 2 yuds short of the margin.
    Or, you may leave the line above, write the lamed of עלי perfectly ender the left part of the caf, and its top [tzavar] extending totaly outside the margin. so you will have a leter [yud] and a half [part of the lamed] outside.

    1. I think I will go with the 2nd option.
      What about a long "מ"?
      Thanks.

  2. R' Avraham,

    I just wanted to ask why were you trying to write עלי on this line? It looks like it would be a bit too pressed together, and the next line a bit too spread out. Just curious. By the way the ksav here is beautiful.

    1. No, when I was writing "hanimtzoim" I realized that there is too much space, so I decided to write "olai" in the same line and on the next line I would make long "ת" and "ל" to fill the spoce, but when o got to "וצומו" I realized the "ך".
      Thanks.

  3. I would erase the words "Bshushan vtzumu" and rewrite them with more space between the words. If you look at the parshiot of R' Reuven, the Alter Rebbe's sofer, he often leaves more than 3 full yuds space between words in order to not stretch letters. Since this is Alter Rebbe Ksav you should be able to do the same here

  4. a little sofer trick sshh dont tell anyone :) but in such a case since there is no kesidran in Megillah what i do on a line such as this where the last word or two dont have letters that can be stretched is write the line starting from the last word and then stretch the hei of hayehudim in the beginning... your megillos will never have a letter sticking out or and majorly stretched letters at the end of a line.
    good luck
