Another lesson that took about two weeks due some vacation and only practicing 1/2 hour per day (plus watching Women's World Cup Soccer). As I have said before, the lessons will same practice writing these words or sentences this 5 times. I had to practice it 20 times or more to get through the lesson.
I think one thing slowing me down is that I tend to take a quick peek at my hands from time to time because my hands are slightly out of home position. I figure that this might be a sign that I may not have fully mastered the keyboard (basic alphabet), certain briefs, etc.
Knowing and admitting your weak points and taking steps to correct them is pretty important to a self taught student.
Here is a brief summary of Lesson #8:
* Months of the Year (Briefs)
* Days of the Week (Briefs)
* Writing multi-syllable words
* Writing compound words
* Briefs: All right, begin, began, begun, avenue, Dr., maybe, Mr., Mrs., Doctor, No Sir, No Ma'am, Yes Sir, Yes Ma'am, today, tomorrow, under, understood, understand, understood, woman, women
