3-point perspective & direction

green and white leafed plantsI am a newbie here and to drawing. I am following the graphite drawing lessons and liking what I saw so far. As I view the videos, I try to reproduce your drawings. I have 2 questions on the 3-point perspective lesson:

1) Somehow, my first form went in the opposite direction compared to yours, on the video. How would that happens?

I am a lefty and this will happen most of the time: things get transposed somehow.

2) On the second and subsequent forms, how do I decide where the top of the form ends? Do I need to align with the first form lines to draw the second one to the vanishing point?

I attached my first attempt. Hopefully that will help.
