When you glide.
I’m going to keep going with my automatic writing streak. Apostrophes are also a minor keyboard problem. For some reason, like the cedilla, they come at the wrong time. As a consequence, I have to go back and correct the typo. But what is the most efficient way to correct a typo? In my case, I use two techniques.
Firstly, I don’t know what variables make me choose one technique or another. Let me explain a little. If I type a series of characters and I notice a typo on my own, I’ll either delete all the characters up to the typo, or I’ll move my cursor to the right place and then correct only the typo. But without knowing why, I irregularly choose between these two techniques. Does my brain analyze the situation and choose the right one? I often have the impression that the other one would have been better if I had analyzed the situation in real-time. But would it really have been the case? The limit between the number of characters to delete or not seems to be around 4 or 5 characters.
Interesting, isn’t it? In fact, every time I make a typo, I could take the time to analyze the situation and take note of it.
