One of the things I love about reading other people’s blogs is that very often I come across paragraphs, sentences or complete posts that apply to me perfectly. Such is the case with A Thousand Thoughts‘ recent post Degenerating.
My typing skills are going backward. I have noticed lately that I have been making typos, leaving words out of sentences and just generally being unpolished. I used to pride myself on my spelling and the fact that I could form coherent sentences. I have felt much more comfortable this summer in online venues like forums and comment boxes. So my fingers fly over the keyboard leaving my thoughts, but leaving a grammatical travesty behind me. I’m glad I’m more comfortable sharing myself, but I miss my skills. I think I’m typing too fast. I need to slow down and think about what I’m doing.
Ditto. Me too.
