My advice it to write a few pages a day on your computer, about anything. Make sure the spellchecker is on, and in time your spelling will improve.

And/or otherwise, go crazy reading novels.

My real problem is that my fingers get to fast for each other.

You're not alone. Happens to most people.

my typing speed would be 1.5 to 2x better if i didn't have to hit the delete key so much.

My spelling is nearly as bad as my grammar. I blame it on the fact that I went to special ed class for six consecutive years instead of English class.

My excuse/s? I had serious ADD for martial arts, and girls. In that order.

He is right. My constant posting on this and other forums and lists has done wonders for both my spelling and typing. It still sucks like a black hole, that is why I edit. However it sucks faster than it use to by far and I do spell better than I did ten years ago. Practice might not make perfect, but it does make better.

I suggest getting a typing game, one of the kind that measures your typing speed. Play it until you get more comfortable with where the keys are :). It helped me a lot. One of my favorites is Typing of the Dead (if you can still find it out there on the internets).

I am laquosous, not Mr Spell. I have one friend who will correct your email and send it back. He prides himself on spelling, I like a bigger vocabulary and the bit to use it. I am half Irish after all, I definately have the gift of gab.

I have 70,000 word vocabulary and I am not abashed to employ it.
