Typing is marvellous. I learnt at school for a while. But it wasn't until I had my first computer that I could really type at speed without looking at the keyboard.
But writing? I learnt that at school too, but not very well. My defence is that I was caught in the changeover teaching at school between cursive script and printing. I can print and it looks childish. But my cursive writing is terrible, although readable. It is just ugly. The only time I can write reasonably is after a couple of drinks. Only two though, it quickly goes to hell if I have any more.
