speed reading

psy/speed-reading:
6.7:
. the 2 issues with speed reading are:
motivation -- how to stay interested in communicating;
and, familiarity -- before one can read idioms as such
rather than subvocalized words,
one has to be familiar with the sublanguage, the jargon, or author ecentricities;
so then, one path to speed reading
is simply brute-force being well-read .
. another key task is filtering:
given my primary goals,
how much of this page is worth stopping to vocalize;
sometimes it can help just scanning pages to give your subcon'mind a taste,
hoping for inspiration upon a 2nd pass .
