So, here I sit, once again, at my computer… but today, it’s very different. Today, the words aren’t flowing. Today, I’m having to think not just about what I want to say, but about each and every letter, each character I type.
Today, I’m using a Dvorak keyboard. I’ve stopped making up excuses not to make the switch and have not only eaten the peach, I’ve grabbed the bull by the horns as well. And I have to admit: it’s painful. There are just two things stopping me from plugging my trusty old QWERTY back in, obsolete as it is: one is the memory of when I first learned to type – that was no less painful, but the struggle was soon won – and the other is the knowledge that the benefits of the Dvorak layout will pay dividends in the long term.
I think giving up smoking will be a doddle after this!
