Is it ok to say
השלי
השלך
etc

Eg.
הכתב שלך יותר יפה מהכתב שלי
changed to
הכתב שלך יותר יפה מהשלי

Is such a thing allowed? Or is there a different/better way to write "mine", "yours"?

    Hi Lydia!

    No, you can't say that.

    The reason is that possessive pronouns are a kind of turning a indefinite to a definit.

    In this case. the word "שלי" is already a definite (של +י = שלי). So you don't need to add another definite - ("ה").

    Hope i helped,
    Aviel
