I will update this as I find some more briefs or words. (I learned Magnum Steno, but I’m open to all theories!)
Yahoo YAO* (depending on context depends on if there is an ! at the end.)

Internet SPWERNT (per MW, It is always capped.)
e-mail MA*EL (per MW, always with the hyphen unless you’re talking about a blueish green color or enamel.)

I was going to record myself reading some of these but figured that there had to be some better options out there on YouTube! Feel free to use these for your stenography practice.
This is not a full list of free dictation that you can find online. Just type in “free steno dictation” in either Google or YouTube and you’ll find a plethora of audio and motivation!
There is nothing I hate more than practice logs. In grade school and even at Schreiner, I never had accurate practice logs because I either lied on my practice logs or just did a generic log and practiced more than I said. (don’t get mad. I DID graduate with my BA in Music!) I don’t even make my flute students do logs if they don’t want. If it is something that they think will help them, then I have them do it. I have even had students text me when they practice. Kind of the same thing, but it was more of a text saying “practiced” with whatever emojis they felt the practice resulted in.
This hatred of practice logs has traveled with me to court reporting school. Yes, I practice. If I didn’t practice, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Can I practice more? Of course. Michael Phelps can practice more. Manu Ginobili has bad days.
