Goal: 100+ wpm(peak), 40+ [30-Mar], 50+ [1-Apr], 60+ [9-Apr], 70+ [18-Apr], 80+ [May?], 90+ [Jun?], 100+ [Jul?], Note: (1-Apr) correct posture and keyboard position +5-10 wpm, (9-Apr) not pronouncing letters inside my head but feel them at fingers instead +5 wpm, (9-Apr) typing when tried -10-20 wpm (12-Apr) look at next word right before finishing current word +5-10 wpm, (14-Apr) made a lot of swapping mistakes, 60sec test wpm stay around 65 on both 10FF&monkeytype websites. Max raw wpm is about 90 for first 10-15 sec (monkeytype.com) but drop to 70-80 after that, 10words test (monkeytype.com) max at 95 wpm 100%acc. Easier to roll when there're few words, I guess. (23-Apr) word by word typing instead of letter by letter, somehow reached 75 wpm, feel like a flow; finger rolling fast and consistence without delay including spacebar, a bit not focus. (24-Apr) try English 10k on monkeytype speed drop to 50-60 wpm lots of unfamiliar vocab, changing back and speed improve to 65-75 wpm (26-Apr) cannot reach 75 wpm or even that flow feeling anymore, made swapping mistake a lot. Limit test (zen mode, monkeytype): home row rolling: 1571 cpm (314 wpm), random typing: 1372 cpm (275 wpm) Current problems: swapping character. Proven Success Factors: -Good keyboard position -Good posture -Practice with an objective of improving skills, techniques, capabilities, or muscle memory (don't practice mindlessly, u will get stuck at low-mid wpm) -Touch typing is a must-have skill (ur eyes need to read ahead) -Read ahead (don't stare at the current word, ur reaction time when u pause to read the next word or letter is normally 0.2 sec. that's 10 sec wasted every 50 words) -Improve Muscle memory (practice lots especially wrong/struggle words) -It does not count if accuracy is below 96% (no actual progress if the wrong word stay wrong) -Typing by feeling the letters at ur fingers (u don't need to process meaning or pronounce the word in ur head, just type on sight) -Word by word typing instead of letter by letter (word not w-o-r-d) -Notice if ur pace drops. Keep it high (stay at max raw wpm, keep rolling like u have a few seconds/words left, ur body and brain will get used to new speed over time then u can push it further, like other sports/physical activities) -Use shortcut Ctrl+Backspace -Tried? Angry? Frustrated? Find ur way to handle them, they slow ur brain and ruin wpm.
