Fainthearted Fumbling

Learning to touch type after years (including two degrees worth of essays) using the 'point and stab' technique. Listening to Kaki King and Jack Johnson. Is an alliterating name a prerequisite to singing a ditty with a guitar these days? Using an online learn to type type of program that is extremely encouraging. Well done!! it proclaims when I have just typed a 24% accuracy and 13 words per minute test. But it's kind of fun. And, I admit scary. One of my new years resolutions is to take more risks. Typing without looking is about as risky as I get these days. It's true. I am living on the edge.
