  1. I like his advice about not trying to write down everything someone says verbatim: “When you’re gathering information, you must get numbers, names, spellings, sequences and meaning correct. But the speaker’s exact words usually aren’t important, because information-bearing quotes usually aren’t strong quotes.”

  2. That Steve Buttry article is incredibly helpful, thanks!
