I found a notebook someone had lost. Then, I found a pencil. And finally, I found myself with some time on my hands. With these 3 things, I did something new.

I listened to another story—the one I next want to write up (and listen to last thing in the day). As it played, I wrote down the words and phrases that I could catch—a dictation, in other words, a running dictation, to be precise.

The idea is not to pause, but make a stab at what you can. Then you fill in the gaps with repeated listening.
