Dvorak Keyboard: 5 weeks

I really like this new keyboard layout. I have yet to get good at it. I think my issue is that keep switching back and forth. I see myself improving, but just not fast enough for my needs.

For me, its like I lost my ability to communicate. My work does not flow well because I can’t write as fast as my brain thinks, so I go over the sentence again and again in my head until it appears on paper. By the time I get to the end of my sentence, I can’t remember where I was going with it.

Where was I?????? :D

I have a lot more compassion for people as they learn to type. I find myself trying be as concise as possible. I even have cut down on blog posts even tho I spend more time writing them. I have over 10 post that are running tho my head with no outlet. I feel about ready to burst with words. I have started making handwritten notes :eek: . I have 600 pages to edit this weekend and about 100 pages to write (not to mention blog posts). If this does not make me a dvorak expert, I don’t know what will.

I think it will be worth it tho. I just need to give up qwerty completely. I feel like an addict. One more email in qwerty… just one more! :D

I know the layout, it is just getting good at it. So here I go. I am going to try going cold turkey on qwerty. Lets hope I have a slow typing week.

I have a lot of writing to do this week and programming.

Dvorak or bust!
