I didn't take touch typing until college.  At the time I was only up
to 35 wpm (IBM Selectrics); I haven't measured my speed any time
lately on a computer.  I don't think I type  that fast, though.  My
speed is better when I am transcribing something pre-written, and not
mine.  On my own compositions, my "self editor" is always running when
I type, which slows me down.
