I just wrote out the last new theory lesson for the fourth and final time. Go me!
I’m a long way from reliable meeting notes, even not verbatim, but I’m pretty good at journalling with it. I’m probably 30-50 wpm depending on the vocabulary and how confident I need to be that I can read it back. 60 is doable if I practice a passage. It doesn’t help that I stared using it for my own notes before finishing the theory. I learned some words wrong. Even so, regular use has helped.
I can read the text no problem.
My next steps are finish the review chapters, about 80 pages. Hopefully they’ll have lots of practice for the last few chapters, but not too many place names. I rarely wrote them, so don’t intend to use the faster forms.
I have a Teeline CD that goes from beginner to 100, so might use that for Gregg speed-building.
Also, there are several stories I want to add to the library here. They’re more interesting than business etiquette and take letters.
Many thanks to the group! Reading other writers has reassured me that I don’t have to match the text.
