I'm a lousy typer, always have been. When they taught us in elementary school I was always the one that when I finished typing the letters on the lily pad the frog would jump up and say, "Yay! You have 28 words per minute!" while everyone else's frogs were chiming fifty and sixty and seventy. I'm guessing it has something to do with my hand-eye coordination problem. Namely I don't have any. I type every day now though, either blogging, or personal writing, as my handwriting is also so lousy sometimes I can't read it. You'd think my typing speed and accuracy would have improved.
But I still end up with sentences like, "We''e all seen teh devastiion wrought by KAtrina, called the worst naturzl diosaster to ever hit teh U.S.". I still look at my fingers, and I have no idea what my wpm is but it's probably not much better. It's irritating because I consider myself reasonably computer proficient, enough to do most of what I want to do anyway, but also something of a perfectionist at that. It drives me nuts to see comments with typos that I've made and can't fix. I know how to spell, the problem is just getting that knowledge down to my fingers. Maybe I need to get better fingers.
