Mark is wonderful, and this board has gotten me really interested in his theory. BUT -- and you knew this was coming -- I have tried and tried with his idea of practicing at very high speeds, and it doesn't seem to help me.
Some possible reasons: I am court a lot with judges who race through material that is boilerplate to them and their regular reporters, but not to me. So I already have a lot of butt-kicking stuff to write anyway; is it an overload problem? Maybe I am not consistent enough about writing at high speeds? It seems that all I really get out of this is discouragement, and perhaps that is the problem right there.
I know this works for a lot of people, so all ideas will be gratefully considered at this point. Waaah!
