Sean Wrona peaks at over 200 WPM on QWERTY

I bet I could improve by a good 2 WPM if I would stop double tapping after periods.

The other thing that probably hurts my typing speed is that fact that I never use the ASDFJKL; home keys. I just type a single word then work from there. I guess Dvorak wouldn't work that well for me since I don't use home keys. Even if a lot of you here on OCN can out-type me, I'm OK with that, since I type faster than just about everything I know, save for a few people, who do happen to be my PC gaming friends. Figures, us PC gamers can blow past the console gamers for WPM.

BTW, 100 posts. Go me!
I think this is fairly common, and what you need to do when typing a prewritten paragraph is think about what you're typing rather than just type what you see...I can't explain what I mean, but try to read a step ahead of what you're typing, and then think about what you just read and type from that rather than typing what you are currently viewing. I have a feeling it has to do with a delay between reading and reading comprehension...but I don't know. All I know is I tricked myself into typing prewritten paragraphs more quickly by doing this.

Also, I use a Filco keyboard with blue switches -- does anyone know what the approximate speed increase would be if I didn't bottom out while typing?

Edit: holy crap necro. Just realized ! Oh well, I won't edit my original post lol.

Good to know, I've never actually practiced typing. It is all from talking to people during gaming or messaging. That'd be too much of a pain in the ass to try and use dvorak for me personally. If I had to learn a new layout, it'd be for a different language such as the Korean layout if I were to learn Korean.

I think my peak has gone to 180 but it has slowed down a lot the past 4-5 years since I had a period where I played mostly shooter games. I currently sit around 130 while trying out different mechanical switches but I seem to type slower on these.

I typed slower on the mechanical switches for a while too, but after getting used to them (especially the MX Blue switches) I surpassed my CPM by a good deal - I went from ~710 CPM on laptop-style keys to around 760 CPM on a mechanical keyboard.
