This is an experiment to write without
looking at the screen. I am confident in
my knowledge of the keyboard and my muscle
memory. It comes natuurally. I have made
typos thus far. About 4. I just looked at the
Occasionally I will get terribly
confused. Right now my eyes are closed.
This is a simple task. The true
operatuibm as akways, is to
have something to write…
I looked again. You’ll nptoce that the
formatting is off kilter.
I have to guess when to hit return.

Tg – I looked again – the special characters
are the really difficult part. It has nothing to
do with the actual forming of words. For instance, Ive
made several mistkes. adding extra letters or
misspelling a word. Hitting delete or a comma or
apostrophe is fatal.
There is no clear purpose to this experiment. It is
funny though because a simple comma
throws everything off. I havent yet typed
while looking at the keyboard. For the past two paragraphs my eyes
have been closed. The issue, really, are the commas. Periods
and capital letters are no issue.
That is actually incredibly easy.
Spaces, as a clearling act, reset my spatial
I just did minor editing. I left typos in.
Excaept the line special charters are. I had it as special characters is. That
is an interesting result of this experiment. I
make very simple grammatical mistakes. I cant
see what Im typing so I have no added resource
to combat mistakes. Also, I cant press delete…
The formatting, as I mentioned earlier
is off. Obviously. I look occasionally to see what
is going on. Ive thought about doing
this for a while. Typically I make each
line similar as far as length in character is
concerned. I will split up works like thi-
That would require remember positions, thinking
of something to write and also counting letters
and spaces. That sounds terribly
I opened my eyes to read what
is there. I am writing to you as a friend. We
are involved in this experiment together. I
open my eyes, whick har like checkpoints.
They have broken this session into several bits.
Like I said, I haven;t opened my eyes while typing yet.
Funny. I said opened my eyes. Not looked at the screen.
I find it is easier to close my eyes.
It turns it into a different experience. I am
listening to music.
I have made a bynch of progress on the music
THere are methods of doing all kinds of things
but, as always, there is the issue of figuring
out what to do. lync 00dump httpsL..www.
I have completely lost the plot with this one. I need
to return to the experiment and not
I will now write as fast as I can for maybe two
paragraphs. Obviously I will let you know when Im
done. One thing you may notice is I will get
confused and words will shift letters. So instead
of t I will write y. Silly. Okay
U came across the river on a beaituful
moon night and believed I saw a green fox
scattering blister pack death dreaming
across the silver
dead spoon along all along the fat clock
Pause. What? That is the best I can come up with? Lame neo psu
gobbledyhook. Okau. This time I will return to the
musical collection front and try to explain
in maybe a 30 second burst.
I knew there was music I wasn;t hearing
and I realized by using location tags I would be
able to find a significant orition of local music so I set
about figuring out how to do it. I realized
rss feeds, outpit into a file and then converted
into a listenable mediu, would be useful.
So, that was half speed, at best. Lets try again

The experiment has failed. I looked at the screen. I
am looking at the screen now. You will notice that t-
he formatting is better and there are less typos. I a-
m able to edit while writing, including commas. You w-
ill notice the past few lines are different lengths.
For instance, there would be not room to write anyth-
ing above, so I started a new paragraph. Not room? I
am mostly uneducated. Autodidact, I suppose. They ma-
de me read “The Secret Life Of Bees” when I was 14. I
That was a perfectly formatted paragraph. It makes no
sense, but it looks good. I have a problem with that.
The two lines I just made are the same length. It’s h-
ard enough to do it with the eyes open. Like just now.
The last two lines are 1 character longer than the tw-
o preceeding them.
The funny thing is since I am formatting the lines m-
anually, not depending on word wrap or similar funct-
ion, I am actually wasting a lot of time because whe-
n it transfers to html it will look weird. Different
browser configurations or devices will format the te-
xt depending on the screen size.
This experiment is over.
