I’m interested in doing more realtime for myself so that possibly one day I can hook up to my judge or any attorneys, if need be. I’ve only done one VERY SMALL five-page realtime feed for a deaf woman in juvenile court about a year ago. After I did it, I asked the woman if it was satisfactory for her, if she needed clarification on anything that I did, and she said that I did great. There were some things that I noticed that I flubbed on, but for the most part, it was fine. That’s part of the reason why I asked her. Anyway, when she said that, she went on to say it was far better than what others have done for her. Yes, it was only five pages, but that made me feel good, and I was very happy to have helped her.
Getting to my question/questions, what are the things that help you get ready for the smallest to biggest realtime jobs you’ve taken? How do you stay focused after lunch? How do you stay focused when you’re listening to complete rubbish?! :) Whatever it may be, from exercises, vitamins, concentration methods, ANYTHING. I’m very interested to hear what you do. I just need some pointers so that I can learn what works for me.
Gosh, I feel like I’m starting school all over again!
