i spent two years of extra lessons at school learning to type. i was the only one that got the certificates in elementary,intermediate, and wait for it advanced. so i know where the letters are on a keyboard, simple. i place my fingers on the middle row of keys and whizz off whatever is in my mind.
i learnt on a big old olympia typewriter. all us girls would sit in a room clacking away at the keys. never ripping the paper from the barrel, oh no, the teacher would screech at us, 'no girls'. her name was miss wise, (mmm) my mum had her numerous years before. although she was strict and stubborn, she helped me no end.
i dont think i would be able to do half what i do on the computer if i had to press the keys with two fingers because my neck would hurt. so thank you miss wise. i always wondered why i was learning to type. years later i would find out, being bored and in bed most of the time with a condition that doesnt allow you to do much, communicating on line is a good distraction from boredom.
so to my disbelief, of late im finding due to this foggy/woolly/dumb(?) brain by the time ive formed the words in my head, they travel down my arms, to my finger tips and jiggle around on the keyboard im pressing the wrong keys. theres nothing more frustrating then typing a sentence in imcomprehensiable words. how long will i have to keep pressing the delete button? i made posting easy on myself by not using captials, etc so i wouldnt have to keep moving my hands to the left of the board. now this? what am i to do.
