Cincinnati type-in & film report

Try your hand(s) at the typing competition. Can you beat Leigh’s 14.2 net wpm?


The sounds of typing:

A typist’s thoughts:

Then it was time for the movie:


The movie was a hit—everyone laughed, oohed and ahhed, and made the sounds you make when you recognize truths. Afterwards, there was an interesting discussion and we heard an excellent poem from one of WordPlay’s young writers about the power of the pen.

The Super-G raised $100 for WordPlay. (You can donate too.)

What a great day!

PS: I really should have subtracted 5 wpm per error before dividing by minutes. The method used for this competition was really punitive!

PPS: Libby Hunter of WordPlay announced that over 5 years, my typewriter efforts have raised $30,000 for them. How about that!
