Are you just practicing cursive handwriting? If so, not too many people do that any longer.
Here’s a link to a book from 1920 — 100 years ago: https://library.si.edu/digital-library/book/palmermethodbus00palm
It’s a classroom book for a handwriting course in the “Palmer Method of Business Writing” that was offered or required in most United States high schools at the time. This was back at a time long before computers, when cursive handwriting using a fountain pen was the standard way of writing most anything. I have one of these old books and bought a fountain pen several years ago for the sole purpose of practicing.
As for the images you posted, in cursive handwriting, there’s lots of room for individual variation and expression. The loop on the lowercase o, however, should probably not drop down to the baseline and should, instead, form a small loop at the top that, in this case, connects directly with the top portion of the p. Computer fonts that simulate handwriting typically have the o do what you did, but this is just so it will more easily connect with the proceeding letter in the font. In handwriting, this isn’t necessary and probably shouldn’t be done.
Now if you’re trying to practice calligraphy instead of handwriting, the emphasis there is on the beauty of the hand-drawn letters rather than clean, rapid, even, smooth, flowing handwriting. Lots of the same skills still apply, though.
