To-do Tuesday is on temporary hold while I master this whole mothering business. But, the other night while I was wondering if nursing will ever get easier, I remembered a time when I was convinced I would never learn to touch type. Several typing classes in high school, typing software, and a fair amount of hunting and pecking, and still . . . nothing. But, then one day, there I was typing away. It turned out that all I needed was motivation--and college plus e-mail was plenty of motivation. I felt the same way about Word and other software. As much as I despaired at the time, I still managed to master each obstacle.
I want to know about what writing related skills did NOT come naturally to you. Did you learn to type in order to write your first MS? Conquer the computer? What skills are you still trying to master?
