I attribute my typing skills to the many classes I had; otherwise, I wasn't typing much and it does take practice. I did have a few jobs that involved typing, so that gave me some daily practice.

Daily typing of Social Security numbers was a challenge at first, but "practice makes perfect" and eventually, I got the hang of it.

I try to write daily and devote Sunday's to extra writing, but according to my husband, my rightful name is the "All-Night Blogger". I just say, "I'm practicing my typing."
