On my first day of occupational therapy, I was asked to state a goal. My answer: To type.
I can't expect that I'll ever type as well as I used to. At university, I acquired speed and accuracy by entering classified ads on deadline for the school paper. Over the years, I became so fast that co-workers would comment. One asked, "Are you doing that for real? Or are you typing gibberish to make us think you're working?"
Typing was an integral part of my writing process. The words flowed out of my head and through my fingertips. When I stopped being able to type, I stopped being able to write. Several people recommended Dragon Naturally Speaking dictation software. Learning to adapt my writing process to this tool is one of the main reasons I started the blog.
My goal to type is an ambitious one. To reach it will take lots of patience and practice. I might as well start now.
The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dogs.
