We have all been in that situation where you are typing a really important message, word by word.
In each moment you are cautious, remembering all the correct spellings taught to you, or the ones you have taught yourself, letter after letter, words are being formed and in the end, you are all done.
All you have got to do now that you are done with typing this important message is to send it to the intended person.
Each person is different in their own unique way. Some of us after this cautious careful writing will immediately send the message without even blinking, given you have followed all the correct steps. I mean you were using your mind cautiously, what could have gone wrong?
Then some others among us are too cautious. It gets annoying at times, after all the mental work being done, you are looking at your perfectly crafted message. You know it is perfect, you wrote each word carefully, but you still have doubts before sending the message.
So, what do you do? Not rewrite it from scratch, of course! But re- go through every single word written as if you were the receiver reading the message, making sense of what it is saying.
During this period, you may find out maybe you forgot a full stop on a sentence, or perhaps a comma, or even a misspelled word, or best scenario, none of that, but you have discovered a better word for one that is in your typed message.
Writing takes time, you have to think of the words you are going to write.
You have to think of the person you are writing to whether they’ll understand the message you are trying to put across.
You have to remember punctuation in time where it needs to be, and so on. So you write, then you are done, and then again you have to make sure you have not made any typing errors by going through what you have typed, which also takes time.
No person intends to make typing errors while typing, it just happens. You may be looking at it as you are typing but in your mind, you are thinking of the next word to be written. Or even the keyboard auto-corrects your intended word to something else.
Reading a message that has errors makes us think differently about a person, perhaps they were not educated well enough, or maybe they were in a hurry, or something else.
My point is, it is not so appealing to see mistakes in messages, even if you were the one who typed it, you would not be so pumped up about it. In any case, it could have been avoided in the first place even before typing your first letter.
