Build those corners up a few rows perfectly plumb and square then run line blocks with masonry string along the wall. Then you just lay blocks to the line. Double check the blocks for level perpendicular to the wall till you have the hang of it. You can run mortar down the tops of the blocks ahead of time and just butter the edges of blocks as you go. In my thread I link to a YouTube video of a pro showing how he does it. I'm on mobile right now though so hard to link it.

As long as that top course is on the money it probably doesn't matter how wavy the previous courses are. Sorry, no tips on going faster.
