To draw a capital W in cursive begin with a small loop at the top and then draw a slanted line down to the bottom line.  Then draw a slanted line up to the top line.  Retrace it back down to the middle line and then slant to the right, opposite of the other side.  Then draw a slanted line up and to the right.  The upper case W in cursive is a stand alone letter.  It is one of the few cursive letters in the cursive alphabet that does not connect to the next letter in the word.
