When the cat stops you typing

Two seconds before she had her head on the mouse! Of course as I picked the phone up to take her photo, she had to watch what I was doing.

She managed to type. 00ppppppppppppppp and /mmmmmmmmmmmm before I got to the backspace button. At least she didn’t press send! She was stopping me from finishing off a redraft of some notes about reflexivity (don’t ask). I’d realised that I’d miss read the question and needed to add more information about the text I had read.

I was reading a book by Anthony Giddens and trying to understand it but it’s hard going. Now I’ve had a rest I can’t remember what it’s called!

 

Why do I write?

I don’t think of myself as a writer. I love words, but mostly I’m more of a reader, and then as a dabbler at writing. I don’t really plot things, they generally fall out of my head and onto the paper or my mobile screen. I guess it’s just the way I am. I love being creative and since I finished work I’ve started to branch out. I feel like a little dabchick or duck. I paddle¬† away, my feet just gently moving the water of words around, breaking the surface tension but not going deep. And what for? I’ve been told my grammar is not as good as it could be. I don’t do this for likes and views, it’s all quite low key. I don’t expect to ever write a novel. I did once try and write a children’s book, so long ago it’s still stored on a floppy disk!

As long as I don’t bore you too much.

Typing left thumbed

sketch-1565384787266. Boy this is difficult. Thank goodness for apewkk he kwd rgar asgjyjseeas aowkkxgwxjee. That should just read spellchecker but I was holding my phone with my left hand and trying to type with my left thumb which doesn’t have the reach or the dexterity to type accurately. I wish I was ambidextrous.

So I tried using it again after using my right hand. How do people cope if they have injured hands. I tried typing left handed again but after trying to write the word lefthanded eight times I gave up!

The mind is a strange thing. Do you know that the whole of the right side of your body is controlled by the left side of your brain and vice versa? I’ve forgotten a lot of anatomy so I can’t remember the details. The human mind is amazing.
