I start with an "L" motion, keeping a fairly sharp corner at the bottom. Then I add the middle and upper tines of the E. So, it goes
L. then middle, then upper.
For a while, I would start with an "I", then start from the top again, which wasn't bad aesthetically speaking but got sloppy when I was rushed (Yes CalTex, I know. pleb. Thanks.) At times I also adopted the reverse '3' method which I hated but used since I could get a little more speed out of it. Then I decided I hated that one terribly as well. It probably helps that I'm deliberately slowing myself down, too.

Or like this:
I do it the second way : )
I'd do it the second way if I were talented, but I make do with the first method. I do tend to use ampersands liberally in my handwritten correspondence. Although if I see myself collapsing the top loop like I tend to do, I take a moment and try to practice myself out of that tendency.
