A Writer Stops for Nothing

I was so eager to finish the first draft of the Lazy Designer II that even a faulty keyboard could not stop me.

Have you spotted the problem yet :)

    The ‘e’ key started sticking during writing  so I ripped it off and shoved another key in its place.

    Bizarrely, my replacement key works fines as an ‘e’ AND the ‘e’ key, which I put in the other key’s place also works fine now.

    Wird. I wondr what th problm was?

    As long as you know it’s the “e” and the computer knows that it’s the “e” I guess that’s all that matters. :)

    We’ll see what happens after more keys fail. It could start to become confusing.

    Be careful, you know how writers can get superstitious. You may very well find yourself popping and swapping keys on every new keyboard you get as part of some strange ritual logic….

    Uh oh. That would be bad. I could imagine myself going into a new store for a keyboard and shuffling the keys around to get a feel for it before the purchase.
    I’m sure that would go over well.

    If I see right , you have a “dot” between W and R . it should be E

    I’ve had to replace a few keys in my time too ;)

    Yep, the ‘e’ key failed me in my most desperate hour.

    My current Keyboard at work looks very similar. Many keys are wiped out.

    once wrote an entire novel without the letter E.

    use more speech recognition. It’s much easier to write – or let say, to speak – books

    I have found speech recognition in Windows 7 to work rather well, although sometimes it does get “confused.”

    I have never had any success with speech recognition, even on Windows 7. Maybe about 50% accuracy.

    All I know is from the scrabble board – ‘E’ only gets you one point, but there are more of this letter than any other!

    Missing E!

    I’m missing a ‘5’ on one of my keyboards.  We adapt, don’t we?

    It must have sacrificed the E key just to slow you down a bit and relish your accomplishments……….

    I think the real question that needs to be answered is how far did you get before noticing the faulty E key?

    Damn *k*y. When you want to typ* an* you g*t an *!  Sh**sh!

  • http://blog.brentknowles.com Brent Knowles

    Actually the key still worked it was just sticky. I can type pretty fast and because it was stuck it was slowing me down. So I got angry at it.
