hi, Wynne

I went to his seminar at the DRA convention in Monterey a few weeks ago.  Go to www.magnumsteno.com for info about the different products/programs he offers.  I really like his idea about phrasing as much as possible so you have more time to write the big words. I don't think I'll ever be ready for his number system, but who knows.

Jeff,

In Stenomaster theory Mark has "break" as BRAEUK and "brake" with the asterisk.

Same for "new" and "knew."

Does he still do it that way in the MagSteno method?

Comment by Wynne A. Pauly on March 12, 2012 at 17:48

Well, we have a lot in common then.  I'm check into the MagSteno.

Comment by Wynne A. Pauly on March 12, 2012 at 16:58

My main interest is passing the Realtime Exam.  If I'm changing how I write things, it may as well be how Mark does it.  That's what I want to do first, learn what can get me through that test, then work on the other things.

It can't remember what the situation was on Mark's dictionary years ago....it may be that you had to purchase it separately from the book.....I really can't remember now.

Comment by Wynne A. Pauly on March 12, 2012 at 15:59

I agree Mark's system is the best system.

I bought The Steno Master Theory book with 35 Lessons. 

Soon after that he came out with the Magnum Steno series.....so that left me wondering if they were different and if I should not use the StenoMaster book as a guide, thinking that perhaps Magnum Steno has improvements over it.

Are you taking the Magnum Steno book and going lesson by lesson starting at  the first?  Is there a section in the book called Multisyllabic Words?  Is that what you mean?

It appeared to me that the phrase were dispersed all throughout the book so how are you concentrating on phrases?

I'm on Eclipse 5 and, yes, love the autobrief suggestions it has.  So one can buy Mark's dictionary, input it into one's own and then autobrief will suggest it to you as you write?  Is that what you're saying?

I realize this is a lot of questions, but it is just overwhelming knowing where to start.

Comment by Wynne A. Pauly on March 12, 2012 at 14:41

Jeff,

What approach did you take to converting?  I've written many many years too....can't figure out where to start except for little things I see pop up now and then.

Comment by Kelli Combs (admin) on March 12, 2012 at 13:02

I was there too.  He's so fun to listen to.  Amazing how fast he can write and his fingers hardly even move.  I would love to do that.  His book is a bit overwhelming, though. 

Comment by Kellie Zollars on March 12, 2012 at 12:15

I went to both of Mark's seminars in Monterey and am now inspired to do more phrasing.  Love the idea of concentrating on all the little words and phrases that come up so you have more time to write the big words.   

Comment by Kelli Combs (admin) on February 16, 2012 at 8:10

Mark is supposed to be at the DRA seminar in Monterey the 24th through 26th of this month.  That's one of the main reasons I'm going.  I went to one other seminar and he's amazing.  I bought his book but haven't even opened it.  It's a little overwhelming I think.

I got some great tips from his seminar about a year and a half ago, though.

Well, that's true.  That's a good point, LeAnne.
