Spelling spells

Lately I have been having so many spelling typos while I'm on the computer. For instance, I just googled "hotles" instead of "hotels." I have also been skipping lots of letters or accidentally typing "s" instead of "d" on past tense words. And I don't realize all this until I publish whatever I was typing. I find it pretty funny, I mean if I read it out loud back to myself the mis-spelled words sound hilarious. w

friend i also had problem with my typing lately.I improved it with the help of softwares like typingmaster etc. i suggest you to use it,it will help you in many ways. example- in keyboard we have dash(-) sign inscribed on F & J,so that we can easily remember the letters near these two buttons.

yes, usually I always encountered that when I am texting messages. Like "Love" will be "luv".

If you typed too fast, then it will surely happen. My speed in typing is just slow but still I commit some errors. Anyway, I think it is normal. Before publishing your works, have enough time to review to make your work free from mistakes.

Well the technical aspects seem to have been covered. No one is perfect and even the fastest typist makes the errors. There are plenty of tools to help speed the correction process which is what we are left to do. You could try taking a deep breath and slow down a little until you get back in the rythm. Everything ebbs and flows. Including our minds and bodies. Of course it is hard to slow down if the midnight oil is getting low or the deadline is passed.

Yes, it's normal. For some people though they misspell a lot of words if they stutter a lot when they talk. Some people on the other hand they just don't care or they just don't know how to spell. Whatever the reason is i don't think it's a big deal as long as you're just a normal person and not a public figure. People tend to criticize public figures/celebs who can't spell right. Paris Hilton had a shirt that says "I'm hot, Your not" and it was on the cover of a tabloid magazine where they made fun of the misspelling of "you're".

Your problem with missing the letters could be a stiff keyboard or not pressing the buttons down fully. I had a stiff keyboard once and i missed letters all the time, the buttons eventually broke in though. The "s" instead of "d" thing happens to all of us I'm sure, it happens to me, lol. You could also be thinking too fast for your typing, which is a good thing.
