So I am beginning to write Simplified shorthand.
Right now I am making copies of pages in the manual and just tracing the shapes that Mr. Rader wrote. Just a way to try to get my hand to move this way.
I also have a steno book and have been doing some of the penmanship exercises from a series that was in the Gregg Writer. I think I downloaded the PDF from one of the messages on this group.
It raises the question. What do I do with the lines on the sheet? I don't have a teacher to demonstrate so I am at a loss. None of the manuals I've seen include the lines. Do I always start on the line? Are the outlines always centered on the line? Is is just a general reference so lines of outlines don't droop? Should I write single spaced or double spaced? Some of the outlines will take up a lot of the lower line, do I just leave some space?
There are a ton of questions, sorry. As always any help is great and don't assume I know anything - I don't :-).
