|No reason. I just like Grumpy Cat.|
I tried a 330 wpm just now, and while I got it in places and did NOT drop, it was mostly pretty messy. And that's quite a bit slower than 370. Doesn't look good for me at first blush.
But it's been five months since the NCRA speed contest where I got 280 wpm, and now I'm possibly around 320 (allowing for the messiness of that last 330). That's an increase of 40 wpm. That means if I maintain the progress, in five months--June--I should be at 360, and then that's within spitting distance, right???
*I've run into several Muggles--non-steno folk--who have expressed amazement when I mention that I have to excuse myself to practice, or that I train every day. "You mean you PRACTICE??" Pete's sake, it's the WORLD RECORD. Just because you've taken a few violin lessons doesn't mean you can immediately rip into the Devil Went Down to Georgia.
