speed writing

free association, speed writing is a way to warm up your brain for further more disciplined writing. sometimes people get stuck finding it difficult to start writing. what we did in class was an exercise, much like warming up before you enter a race.
not all of you would have enjoyed it at first, but could you make comments on how it was for you as a learning experience. i could tell that many of you enjoyed it. was it useful?
[this is where you can give feedback on what you do in class - have your say, share ideas, be interesting and constructive please]
:-)

[and yes, i know i am not using capitals - whoops]

I like speed writing. It's fun and I write a whole lot of gross rubbish.

i'm glad you like it, but remember to keep your work within the realms of the appropriate - gross stuff is not acceptable.

have a creative mind, a pen and a piece of paper is what i think should be needed in speed writing.

i looked speedwriting up on the internet. it said.........Imagine being able to write twice as fast as you do now. You'd keep up easily when taking notes in meetings, school or on the phone. Your hand would flow as fast as they talk and you wouldn't miss word when taking dictation. Every person can benefit from writing faster. But who wants to spend months learning traditional speedwriting and shorthand? Now you don't have to...
the website i got that from ishttp://easyscript.com/uses/speedwriting.asp?gclid=CIqN282Z3JECFQc-gwodRnZyeQ
