Steno Perfection

I Love Steno Logo (Cropped)“Perfection is the ultimate addiction.” -Janice Dickinson

I believe that most stenographers are perfectionists. After all, what other type of personality would dedicate so many hours to mastering a skill that requires so much precision.

In our quest for flawless writing, we must remember not to be too hard on ourselves. The fun is in the journey.

Love, Speed, and Accuracy,

Elsie Villega

Steno Style: The Perfect All-Black Carryall Bag

All Black CarryallI’ve searched far and wide for the perfect all-black carryall: Not too small, not too large, not too flashy, practical, a bunch of extra compartments and pockets, sturdily strapped, roomy enough for machine and extras; and I think, I finally found it.

The above-pictured Steve Madden bag seems to be perfect to tote machine, tripod, and all the accompanying reporter doodads. Today is my first day using it. Being that it will be “Steno In The Park” weather this week, I’m sure I’ll have a bunch of opportunities to see how durable it is.
