It's all in the wrist... (and the shoulder, too!)
It's a good idea to warm-up before you start drawing. In order to use the whole body, stand up and keep the knees slightly bent, like you're skiing. Lean over your desk and draw using your whole arm, not just the wrist. The first exercise is circles on a page. See the circles with your mind's eye and then begin. Fill up the page with circles. Now you're ready to draw!
