    A Shorthand Admirer

    I learned Pitman's shorthand in 1960 and completed the whole course only in six months and passed a test at 120 words per minute.  I have ever since kept in touch with it by using it during my studies in England and then in taking Minutes of meetings during employment.  Even...

    Pitman's Shorthand Reading Material

    I am delighted that many people are still interested in shorthand both for work and hobby. I learned in the 1970's but since starting my shorthand websites, I have discovered that there are very many people learning, and wanting to learn, but nowadays they have to study on their...

    Work Experience As A Stenographer

    A stenographer is far different from a typist. The typist work is to type the existing document or manuscript as the case may be. A stenographer has to maintain speed in his writing. He has to possess excellent memory power to recollect the strokes into English language at the...

    Write not until your head hurts, write not until your hand hurts, but instead write until your heart hurts, for it is only through unbearable heartache that we are truly freed.
