When doing the two week course: Week one: you get to read only. Week two: you will write. This thread contains BOTH weeks. If you are doing any other type of course, please follow that procedure. You may read and write in a day or repeat the lesson again in the same week for a weekly lesson, or you may do something else entirely.
You may wish to write out flash cards (if you've been doing that) for the brief forms, phrases, and business abbreviations.
You will find that the "blending" when rounded, is very easy to read and write.
The black arrows in the following were from the manual to show how to and where to join the circles. You do not start there. For those who need help in where to start writing these outlines, I've included red arrows.
