So there's a little bit of a let down once you finish the manual and have nothing to do but slowly build up your speed over a number of years.
Well to give people some motivation, maybe these two pages from section 3 of the "Speed Building for Colleges" will cheer you up. Seeing some alien forms, even though they are little useful as "I call your attention to the fact", although stuff like "back and forth" are little jems of shorthand, can really bring your shorthand writing alive.
SO have a look. Have a half an hour play with it if you want, maybe even post a picture of your attempt to write some of them.
