I’m tempted to give you mine before I toss it out the window of our fifth floor apartment. We have a lot of Fed Ex traffic and it should be pulverized within the hour.
What’s wrong with it?
Well, the keys are at a slope and my fingers keep hitting the wrong ones, so it’s a lot of backup and deleting and cursing. I feel like I’m just learning to type again!!!
I don’t have time for this. With all the writing that I do, I don’t have time to look down at the keyboard—and isn’t that bad for my posture? Which defeats the purpose of having the darn thing!? It just took me forever to type this paragraph without typos.
Ready? I’ll show you one sentence so you see what I mean:
I really7 watnted to haee this jkeyboard so that my writst don’t hurt after a ten hour da at te hethoard.
So. I’m going to look down so that I can make progress otherwise this will take all day lol. I don’t mind the shape of the board, and I need something because last year I wore off the popular letters of the semi-ergonomic keyboard I had, and I still had problems with aching hands. I love telling stories, and for me that requires typing. The older I get the worse my handwriting gets, no lie.
I am using a Microsoft ergonomic keyboard that does feel good on my palms and wrists. I have my monitor lifted so that I don’t look down (normally lol) and I sit in a chair with wonderful back support.
This keyboard has a lot of other bells and whistles that I will probably never use…I just want to get my stories out. On that note, I also installed Scrivener on my laptop to use for all the books I’ve got coming up. My post-its, while wonderful, were not up to some of the rewriting I had to do, and as I just mentioned, my handwriting keeps getting more atrocious. Like, I could be a doctor, kind of bad.
So. New keyboard. New organizational program. Next month I’ll blog about Scrivener, but for now, I’d love to know what keyboards you all like? This one will be lucky to make it the month.
