Hi everyone, I ran across this site and I’m happy to be able to join up. Both my parents at some time in their lives were stenographers so I grew up with Gregg shorthand books around. I’ve tinkered with it off and on for years. I’m no expert but I recall one of my college English instructors returning an exam once to me because I had written it in shorthand, assuming she could read it. For a while I have been bringing it back, studying it daily, using Diamond Jubilee 2nd Ed. As a language nut, I like Arabic and Russian because they have strange scripts, so shorthand falls into line with that. I write books and one my crazier ambitions is to write a novel in Gregg and publish it. So I took my scifi / horror novella Frenzy and started transcribing it into Gregg. For comparison, the Latin character version of Frenzy can be downloaded for free at Smashwords under the author name Glenn Lazar Roberts. These jpg’s look clear on my computer; I hope they show up just as clear when posted.
I just edited this to enlarge the jpg’s.
