Net Speed: 74 WPM
Gross Speed: 75 WPM
Generally I'm about 100 wpm, but I just spent an hour moving ~ 1 ton of rocks by hand...a little cramped up.
Typesetting publications for 3 years earlier in life got me here...also taught me all of the 4 letter words I know.
You can just type whatever you want and disregard the story to find out the difference. I was about 70 wpm reading and typing, but 93 wpm just thinking and typing. A real keyboard instead of a laptop also slows me down too.Well, go and see how you do!
I wonder if the system is slightly flawed, considering that you have to look and read the words before you type them, as opposed to if you already have the words in your mind.
Since I switched to the colemak layout I can type a bit faster than with qwerty, but I suck at touch typing so I get about 38 WPM when I have to keep on looking up at the screen and then back on my fingers. I can type MUCH faster when I can just look at my fingers and just type away.
