“Step right up and call me Speedy.”
I took a typing class in hi skule, one of the few classes that actually taught me anything worthwhile, and after a semester was up around 40 or 45 words per minute.
And, while I type a lot (I do fancy myself a writer, after all), I’ve never clocked myself at much more than 50 wpm with any consistency, even on a good day.
Today, as part of a job interview, I did 73 wpm over a five minute period, and felt (before I learned my rate) that I had been a bit slow, and encumbered by numerous keying errors that I deleted and retyped.
Didn’t know I had it in me. 🙂
