Brain faster than fingers

As a writer when an idea comes through your brain you either have to write it down or put in your computer almost immediately. I’ve learned as I get older, my memory can’t hold for very long. Sometimes I have to stop what I’m doing and write the thought down on anything available. My editor just loves my notes. Napkins work really well 🙂 That’s clean napkins!

Sometimes the way my brain works my fingers can’t keep up. I’ll be typing as fast as my fingers will let me, but my brain is ahead of me. That’s when it gets crazy. I get frustrated because my brain is spitting the story out like a battalion leader, but my fingers are still at start. 

One day I got so frustrated that I actually sat down with a pen and paper and wrote the story. My editor just looked at me and laughed. When I didn’t say anything she was like you didn’t really hand write this did you? I smiled and said at least it got out of my head. She usually just shakes her head and starts typing. Sometimes I think she wants to throw things at me. 

Is your brain faster than your fingers? 

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

  1. My brain is often much faster than my fingers. I have rheumatoid arthritis and some days my fingers just won’t cooperate. I started using Dragon Naturally Speaking and it has helped a lot. While it takes a little while for it to learn your speech patterns, eventually it learns your vocabulary and accent so that it can type as fast as you can speak!

    Good luck with your writing!
