Hey all! I am new to touch typing and only recently finished a basic practise of the whole keyboard. Before I move onto more extensive practice, one issue that I face is that my fingers fly away from their default positions while touch typing. By default positions I intend to refer to an image like this.
For example, while typing “bazaar”, I manage to press the “r” with my middle finger instead of the index finger. This is simply because the middle finger at that position of the hand is more conveniently near to the “r” key than the index finger is. However, this messes up my balance of the hand and I have to pause for almost a second restoring my hand position back to the home row with index finger at the f key.
Similar case applies to “secret” or “raced” (pressing c with index finger)
How do I avoid this?
