Dear god, just take me now...
I've skipped ahead on one of my newyears resolutions, learn how to type with ten fingers and not two (and look like a chimpanzee while doing so). Problem is, I love to write. Writing is my LIFE! Thats why I want to learn how to properly use my keyboard. It should be faster and give me a few extra writerly coolness points to boot. *high-pitched valleygirl voice* "Hey, dig me! I'm, like, writing at, like, warpspeed!"
Monday, I've started training a few hours ever night with a cd-rom and today learned the final keys (and lost feeling in my right pinky...). Now the program gives me text to type over to increase my speed and accuracy. If I grit my teeth and keep on hitting those keys every night, I should eventually regain my old typing speed. But I have idea's floating around in my head now! I want to write and get back in "the zone", which is pretty hard at my current speed. It's like having to learn how to walk again.
I'm tempted to "cheat" and write "just a few pages real quick" with my indexfingers, but I'm afraid that will harm the progress I made. What can I do? Cheat? Abstain from writing for a week (I can't be creative at this low speed!) until I finished all speed improvement lessons? Drink a mix of coffee and red bull so I can keep going all night and up the tempo?
Someone! Anyone! Give me the strengt to actually finish learning a new skill and not half-ass my way out of it again!
