It sounds like the OP is concerned about the visual effect
of the cursor moving on the screen while characters are

I doubt whether curses provides any way of controlling
that. Curses was designed for glass ttys, on most of
which it is physically impossible to write characters
without the cursor moving. The best you can do is move
it back to where you want it afterwards.
