I used to be very fast and loose with my sketching. I would almost just scribble with my pen or pencil across the page even if I was doodling or trying to draw something realistic. The one thing I learned from writing in a journal every day is that in order for your lettering and your penmanship to look nice and neat, you have to go slow and take your time. If you take it slow, then you have more control over your writing instrument. So when I sat down to draw in my sketch pad for the first time, that was the one thing that I took into consideration and I think that because of that I my lines were a lot more steady and well defined. Even looking at this last drawing I did I feel that it looks a lot more clean than the last drawings I did.
