The Fairly Reasonable Goal

Greetings, everyone!  It's been a while, yes, and last time I wrote a blog post it's been a while.  I'm going to do another blogging adventure through this coming year, because my goal this time is NOT to achieve 370 wpm, but rather to pass all NCRA contest legs in one sitting.  All the speed, all the realtime.  I've passed all the legs (except for the testimony realtime) of the contests before -- just not all in one sitting. Fairly reasonable, right?

I'll do much like I did for the Guinness attempt, blogging once a week with my progress.  Starting tomorrow, my goal will be to have three practice sessions of five minutes each, with my final practice at 9 pm.  I'm going to set an alarm in the evening, like I did for the Guinness attempt.

Addendum:  This is what I look like on the first day of the NCRA annual convention:
Cersei Lannister, all regal and dressed up and hot.
I assure you that my husband and I are in no way related.
And this is what I look like on the last day of the convention:
Jeff Bridges as the Dude, bathrobed and boxered in the grocery store with a hangover-hiding pair of sunglasses.
I'm not even kidding.

So stay tuned!


  1. Awesome! My new goal is to get into the top five for Realtime Lit. I don't care about speed or Realtime Q&A and doubt I ever will, but dang it, I really want to do better than 11th place on the Lit next time! If you ever wanna be practice buddies, let me know!


This isn't for censorship purposes; I set "comment moderation" on simply because that way I get a notification that someone has indeed commented. Otherwise I won't know! Also, there is the occasional spam that happens.
