Realtime in action
I recently had the pleasure of attending Anita Paul’s realtime presentation at the NCCRA seminar in Sacramento on November 1st, 2012. 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.”
