I must start with a confession: that despite many years of pouring terrible ideas into keyboards I have never learned to type. I am here now as I believe, despite the the apocalyptic vibes of 2020 it is not too late*.
I say 'I can't type' but perhaps that is an over simplification as over my lifetime I have developed a sudo-ASDF typing style. This 'style' enables me to pound the keys at a reasonable rate but the process is ungainly relying heavily on my right hand and sight of the keyboard. My typing is lopsided, as if my right hand were at a rave whilst my left enjoys the village toddler's morris dance.
The problem is: My style works well enough. I once passed a temping agencies typing test but it was not pretty, for me to read and type at speed is an ungraceful affair. My dream is to type as Mozart would have done: with one ear to the desk (ideally wearing something frilly) whilst my fingers are ablaze in a symphony of overly long forum posts.
I am aware of the old matriarch Mavis and her methods. I have typed at the dead but I wanted to ask The Children of The Bomb: How did you learn? From whom? Do you have any tips? Any preferred games? Tell me your tails of typing for I thirst for inspiration.
