When you float.
Continuing on with this automatic writing and the elements it allows us to analyze outside the words we generate, I’ve noticed another pattern. In the Windows operating system, the keyboard shortcut CTRL-Left or CTRL-Right usually moves the cursor to the next space character. This means that if you notice a typo in a word that is relatively far away, I think my brain analyzes the possibility of getting there using this technique, without using the arrows one by one, or without deleting the whole text.
I notice, however, that this technique applies to words of a certain length. In fact, I noticed that I dodged this technique in this text in a sequence of very short words. Perhaps my brain concluded that the time spent moving my fingers for the key combination was unnecessary compared to manual correction, because I deleted the entire sequence instead of moving with my cursor!
One last element I have observed is the discovery of typos using autocorrect. Indeed, the discovery using our mind without seeing it and using autocorrect are two different things.
