Somebody else already mentioned the Catamount web site with tips, but I'll
add the quickie pointer. You want to write your letters lower, over the
middle of the base line where you want your text to appear on top of. It's a
bit complicated to explain, but I believe that Hardy's site has a graphic
for you to see. As for the letters disappearing, yes, in handwriting
practice, your letters will disappear, but this shouldn't happen in normal
circumstances. :-)

Happy writing! Hope things are going will with you. :-)
