I am currently studying Chinese. I'd be interested in any advice people could give me with regard to making my Hanzi practice more productive.

I remember in one Chinese class a while ago that the teacher mentioned that professional calligraphers (correct term?) use special breathing techniques to steady their hands when they write Hanzi. I'm not looking to write Hanzi as a job, but I would be interested in any techniques I can use to improve my form.
Also, can anyone suggrest any motivational techniques I can use to improve my patience as I'm practising writing Hanzi? What would you say is the limit to how many characters I could learn in one sitting? How many times should I practise writing each character, how often should I revise them?
