Today was the third day of are training and things are starting to amp up.  Shorthand is slowly but surely getting there but in my case there is still a long way to go.  We also had to do several news writing exercises requiring us to pull out the most relevant information from press releases within a tight word count.  This turned out to be much more difficult than I expected.  I realised I missed the point as I was just summarising the information when I should have been presenting the relevant parts to our target readers.  But that's why they call it training.
