    Hello there people

    I just wanted to share something that happened to me today. I was getting a little bogged down with my article writing service. It happens once in a while when the subject matter is a little repetitive or difficult.

    So, I was thinking of ways to make things interesting. Guess what I did. I started typing with my eyes closed.!!!

    Of course, this will only work for those who don't look at the keyboard. It was pretty amazing. I would say that the strain of article writing was reduced by at least 80%. You have to try it if you write a lot of content and if you can type without seeing your keyboard. You will be surprised at how few mistakes you make. If you type without looking at your keyboard, this method should not make much of a difference at all.

    In fact, it keeps your brain fresh by making it work very differently, because it has to visualize what you type.

    Btw, I am typing this post out with my eyes closed. I will of course proof read it but it is definitely fun and allows you to get article writing work done when motivation is dragging.

    Try it if you like. If you think I am a looney, just laugh it off. Don't neg rep me! LOL

    Cheers
    Ramsweb

    I actually do this sometimes but did not know that it reduces strain by at least 80%... how were you able to compute that anyway?

    Exactly... I'll kick back in my chair, let my mind wander, then dictate my thoughts on a topic. Works wonders once you get the hang of it.

    Actually this is a good exercise not to focus on the keyboard and focus more on the article

    I thought so too. It actually speeds up things a little bit too. Because, when you type with your eyes open, you tend to go back and clean up little typos. But, with this method..you will know that you screw up here and there but the key is to keep going. After the whole thing is written up, cleaning up is so easy because all the mistakes can be cleaned up with the auto suggest correction in word.

    this is me typing with my ees closed. Dammit! Uf U was you Ramsweb then I would also get Dragon Naturally speaking 1-/ Ot os a rea;;y useful program which may help you alot in writing much more qucju Damm I wouldn't be sur[rosed of O was pme pr twp ;etters pit/ Ot spmetjome jard tp get nacl m tacl after pme ;ott;e ,ostale

    I guess this is really highlighting my bad tyoing skills. Looks like I should practice a bit more often. Sometimes it worked just like these few sentences but when you get out (like I previously just mentioned) you can really miss our mark, or uopi cam jp[efi;;y mao; ot.

    Oh... Just opened my eyes to see how well I'd done, and it seems to have gone a bit pearshaped after the fourth word. Hmmm.

    I thought I was doing really well too! Maybe my hand slipped. :(

    Funny that i hadn't thought of this before, but I have been in IM fulltime for about 10 years now. You would think that I could touch type but I'm not even close to having that ability.

    I would have to go with DNS also. But it is a good idea!

    When you can touch type it's much more relaxing to type than talk. It's also much more accurate and faster.

    Dragon can only do 25-30 wpm. That's VERY slow. I can do 120 comfortably or 140-150 for short bursts up to an hour. Most can learn to touch type to 60-80 wpm with only a couple of months practice.

    Just use the free touch typing javascript programs on the web.
