    I struggle with keeping my lettering sizes consistent and connecting letters to make words look 'uniform.'

    I struggle with the flow of letters, some look great. Others not so much, I mainly work on drills and writing names. Looking at your videos I need to practice just the letters one at a time.

    I struggle with finding the right combination of letters to build my alphabet. Some letters just look weird and doesn't flow, but there are some letters that I just love writing them.

    I have heard about this paper, but does it have to be the 32 lb pack?? I recently bought it, but it was the 20 lb pack, and I didn't realize it. Does the 20 lb still work well, because I plan to use it for water coloring as well.

    I am definitely going to buy good quality paper from now on. It was so frustrating that my creations were just bleeding all over the place and I almost lost the fun in hand lettering. I struggle with my alphabet, which isn't consistent and I don't know how to form my letters in such a way that it is smooth and has nice curves… Any tips?

    I struggle with capital letters. I'm german and you write a lot of words with a capital letter in german. Also, sometimes I start writing really big and then it gets smaller or I start writing small and then it gets bigger.

    I struggle the most with my downstrokes having similar widths to my upstrokes where I would end up having to resort to the faux lettering, thank you for all your informative videos.

    Great video, thank you! The thing I struggle with the most is not falling back into old habits of how to form my letters. I've been writing in cursive for so long that it's difficult to avoid making my letters my same old way unless I'm really super focused. Muscle memory is a powerful force! I know this will improve with practice. Thanks for your amazing videos!

    Thank you! You just saved me a lot of money because I was going to purchase special art pads for practice. I struggle with making my upstrokes thin, no matter what pen I'm practicing with. I'm a left-handed, so that may have something to do with it.

    I've been struggling with my spice box brush pens because when I use them on notebook paper, I get the same bleeding trouble with the copy paper. I hope you can help me out! Great video BTW, Subscribed!
