If you're wondering what The Impossible Goal is, you can read about it here.
As I write this, it's five weeks and four days to go until the Guinness attempt, 4:30 pm, August 8, 2013. It's open to the public. Come a bit early to the NCRA convention and have a watch.
I blogged later than normal last week (and forgot to click "publish" until just now), so I don't have much to share except my thoughts. I believe I'm fast enough right now to not completely blow 370, but not fast enough that I'm confident in it. I've been doing speed practice at approximately 500 wpm -- not at all getting it -- but after about a year and a half of training, I know what I must do at this point! I must increase the speed. I'm thinking 530-550.
The problem with making the speed so high is that as I speed up audio, even with the newfangled technology that makes the dictation not sound like Alvin, Simon, and Theodore, the words aren't quite as clear. But you gotta do what you gotta do!
