I went to bed early last night as I was feeling unwell and decided to do something sensible. As usual when I try to do something sensible, it didn’t work. I had a disturbed sleep and am currently not feeling well rested. This always seems to be the case. Whether i’s because I was ill, because I don’t naturally sleep more than six hours a night or am simply allergic to being sensible, I don’t know.
My keyboard is currently missing “t” almost every time I use it. Again, I’m not sure why. It might be because I’ve raised the keyboard by balancing it on a book. This is better for typing in general but has made the keyboard a bit shaky and every so often a key will stop working as I am clearly not striking it properly. The life of a village idiot can be very trying.
You would think, as get close to 3,000 posts, that I would have learnt something, wouldn’t you? Even if I hadn’t increased my knowledge or intelligence, you’d have thought that my control of a keyboard would have been improved. Same goes for my typing accuracy. Or writing ability.
But no. An uncorrected page of Quercus typing is a bloodbath of typos, inelegant phrasing and poor spelling. I have also been known to use cliches, verbal tics and, as if that wasn’t bad enough, tedium.
The only area in which I have improved has been in the speed with which I can conjure up a post from very little, For instance, with little more than disturbed sleep and bad spelling I have been able to produce a post in around twenty minutes. It’s not lightening fast, bu it’s not bad when you consider it used to take me hours to produce a post at one time.
I’m hoping the next post will be better.
