250 Box Challenge

Due to imgur's 50 image limit per album my last 5 boxes are available here:
This took longer than I expected at first, but shorter than I expected around the half way mark, I think I got at least a little faster and was able to focus for longer periods of time on the drawings. Overall, an amazing, if a bit grueling, experience.
A few questions if you don't mind:
I think one of my bigger issues is consistency. Though I think I am capable of doing certain things, like drawing a straight line, occasionally I just don't despite seemingly using the same process for all of the mark making. Is this an indication that I should slow down my process (ex. ghost more) or does this just get better with practice?
One of the points in the challenge talked about the width of opposite ends. Is this something that naturally occurs if the lines converge properly? Or is it something I have to look out for in addition to the convergences.
Taking a look at Lesson 2 material, there seems to be a lot involving curved lines. My ability to draw these (including ellipses, though I think I am getting slightly better at those with practice) is pretty bad, and I'm concerned it may interfere with demonstrating the skills in the lesson properly. For example, I don't think I can draw them as confidently as I do straight lines, they don't curve the way I want them to, and sometimes my arm motion hits my body and causes it to appear deformed. Would you recommend that I jump into the exercises anyways and practice in the exercise? Or spend some time making my ability to draw curved lines similar to my straight lines first?
Thank you in advance for the critique. Feels like I've done something momentous, but looking at the plan it seems like this has only been the first few steps.
