no idea what you mean with in fourths and in fifths, but it would be pretty wrong as every single note sequence you posted were seconds, and below you said 1 - 3
check out my sig.

looks fine, but keep doing the exercise enharmonically around the entire circle of fifths, and then do it in minor keys! great practice, and you can even go past 7 b's or #'s, for instance Db minor would be Db Eb Fb Gb Ab Bbb Cb Db, so not that you would ever write in that key, but it's great mind exercise.

It's not really that hard, just think of a key with a normal number of flats or sharps then see how it relates to your key.

eg, G major - 2 sharps; 5 naturals, G# major (sharpen everything) - 2 double sharps; naturals. Or more extreme:

C# major - 7 sharps, C## major (same) - 7 double sharps

This is also useful for keys that you do write in. eg, if you wanted to know how many sharps were in the Gb major (which is equally as simple as F#major) you could do :

G major- 2 sharps; 5 naturals, Gb major (flatten everthing) 2 naturals; 5 flats

Minors is funner, although you can just think of what key has that note as the 6th.
