Get a separate notebook just like the one above or a blank sketchbook like this one for practicing your lettering. I have used a grid notebook1 cm squares I think, to make it possible to define the shapes without having to rule lines every time I want to create a letter.

My assortment of my favorite lettering and handwriting practice guides!
My personal favorite is the Kaitlin style. She is an incredible teacher — she breaks down everything into steps and has a huge archive of lettering lessons on her blog.
She specializes in pointed pen calligraphy, but lessons are very applicable to brush lettering. Another incredible pointed pen artist, she helps run the HandletteredABCs challenge and walks through the Copperplate and Spencerian scripts through breakdowns and drills. She and Bianca Mascorro have printable guidesheets to practice!
Olivia at Random Olive. She runs the brushletterpracticechallenge and has an awesome brush letter practice guide as well for a reasonable price to help you get into brush calligraphy. Oh goodness Cindy is the BEST — she uses your everyday pens and shows you how to make magic with them step by step.
She has awesome videos on YouTube that walk you through the steps, and has free worksheets on your blog to help you improve your handwriting.
Since handwriting is the basis to a lot of this faux-calligraphy and hand-lettering, this is extremely helpful.
WHEW what a list!
