“A fellow reporter was saying in the Court Reporters of Facebook group that she’d signed up for Anita Paul’s Realtime Mastery Workshop, she was excited and hoped it’d be worth it. There were many positive comments shared, and of course I shared mine! Here it is, sharing on my own page along with a picture of Anita Paul Johnston and Attorney Ed Chin, who were rock star presenters at the Washington DC reporters association annual conference when I was president: “At the time I took Anita Paul’s Realtime Mastery class, I had been reporting 30+ years, offering realtime for a decade, had no conflicts, wrote at 99.5+ translation rate every day for years, edited quickly and easily from the writer keyboard, and wrote my own macros – all self-taught, by the way. Because of my association with the Washington DC reporters association (as president and offering my time to them), I became friends with Anita and decided to take her class even though I THOUGHT I didn’t need it. It was the most amazing experience e-v-e-r. Did I know a lot of stuff going in? Oh, yes. Was I working under the impression that there wasn’t much more for me to learn? Oh, yes. But did I learn some AWESOME things, tips & tricks for writing, as well as ASSERTIVENESS techniques and other things? OH, YES! So even this old dog, who had the idea that I knew it all, learned a BUNCH from Anita Paul Johnston, and It was a wonderful experiece, especially her suggestions for “ergonomic writing,” that is, if a certain stroke causes you (me) difficulty, just change it to be not so difficult a reach, because the reaches we do while writing affect our whole body! And even today, I have several outfits that I wear on particularly difficult days when I know in advance I’m going to have to “channel Anita Paul Johnston,” and I wear them with pride and CONFIDENCE.” Mary Ann Payonk, Washington DC

Realtime in action
I recently had the pleasure of attending Anita Paul’s realtime presentation at the NCCRA seminar in Sacramento. I have been writing realtime throughout my entire 20-year career both as a freelance reporter and as an official, and thought I was pretty on top of my writing. Wow, did I have a lot to learn. I have been working a lot harder than I ever needed to. Anita’s presentation provided me with a wealth of incredibly practical realtime techniques and strategies that I wish I’d learned 20 years ago. She covered a huge amount of material in three hours, and shared her expertise and knowledge at a lively pace infused with equal doses of humor, warmth, and encouragement. The very next day I began incorporating some of the briefs I had learned the night before because they are so intuitive and easy to adopt. I look forward to
attending Anita’s more comprehensive workshop in the not-too-distant future.

Jenny says …
“I recently had the wonderful opportunity of spending three days of private realtime coaching with Anita. I’d previously been to Anita’s seminars and had learned a great deal and had enjoyed them very much. To have Anita personally at my side in training was a natural extension of that learning. In a personalized way, she was able to look at my level of progress and show me where to go from there. Now that I’m back home, I’m so excited as I am applying the knowledge and tools Anita gave me. Her private coaching far exceeded my expectations, and I would highly recommend it to anyone with a desire to become a great realtime writer. The value was worth far more than the investment.”
