Since most of my handwriting nowadays is notes a Uni, it's done on paper with little 5mm squares (meant for maths - drawing Cartesian coordinate systems on ordinary lined paper is metaphysical punishment establishment). I usually write on every second horizontal line, x-height being something like 2/3 of the 5mm to the line above, so the "empty" rows of squares get punctuated by alot of ascenders as well as descenders from the text row above. When writing rapidly, my lines tend to sag, so a line of text may end one or two rows beneath where it started.
