I never ever did work out how to touch-type. Consequently I still type very inefficiently using just two fingers. It could be much worse of course (my typing could still be one finger only) but two fingers is still piss poor for someone who spends so much of his life sitting in front of computers. I should’ve picked up this key life skill when younger, but now I’m older I think I’ve missed my opportunity. I’m lumbered with inefficient two-finger typing for the rest of my life.
However, there is this one specific letter key my left forefinger never does quite hit properly. It seems to be my timing which is the problem, so I'll often type this one key just slightly out of sequence. This letter then pops up in the wrong position, right next to where it should be in the word but swopped over with the letter next to it. I still don't know why this mix-up should keep occurring but, subconsciously, it seems my fingers just don't process sensory instructions in the right order. I need to check my typing closely to ensure this error doesn’t slip through too often.
So, in writing this piece I've decided not to use this one specific letter, not even once, just to ensure there's no risk of me mis-typing it in error like I so often do. If you look through the sentences I've written here you might well work out the identity of the omitted letter, the one key which might otherwise give me serious trouble. It’s been difficult, but this letter’s not here.
I hope my typing skills improve in the future, else every forthcoming piece I write will need to be constructed this meticulously. Or else I'll need to buy anew keyborad. Bugger.
