Practicing letter forms with a lower case m between each letter is called
the m-chain method. When you are ready to begin creating letters, start by
lettering lower case letters. In between each minuscule, place the lower case
letter m. The letter m will accustom you to a sense of space around
each form. Once comfortable with lower case letters, begin lettering the
uppercase letters. Again, place a lower case m between each majuscule.
