As part of my New Year’s resolutions, I was going to concentrate on writing more and doing more essays here. That’s yet to start, as I find it hard to come up with things to say on a weekly basis: how’s the weather; what am I doing today? It doesn’t help that my already bad typing skills have deteriorated, and it’s a struggle to type more than ten words without having a simple spelling mistake (doing, have, and than so far). It’s not even that I’m typing fast – even when I slow down I hit the wrong keys (well, the wrong order, mostly). The vagaries of growing old.
So I’ll be typing more and hoping that spellcheck catches up with my mistakes. Maybe I should take a keyboarding course to increase my declining skills (would it work? could I relearn some of this stuff?). We’ll see.
