Generally people seem to find decoding more challenging than keying, so maybe take that into consideration regarding proportions of time spent.
Ops will come back to you at the speed you xmit
not much point in wizzing ahead with keying.
You need to make progress all the time though to avoid boredom, so if you bought it then use it.
Can you learn with someone else so you can take turns and read each others code ?
Try deciding what you are going to key in advance and then you can concentrate on your keying.
If your spelng is as bad as mine then write it down . . .
ps expect lots of junk email if you publish a valid email with an @ in it.

This is addressed to anyone on LCWO, not just petermccreacwnext (this thread starter).
cb - Chris asks, "Can you learn with someone else so you can take turns and read each others code ?"
I know how difficult it can be to find someone to do that with. I would be very happy to have QSO contacts with learners (no matter how slow; no matter how many errors) using morse over the internet - either CWCOM or iCW. Myself, I can cope with QSOs up to 12 wpm.
Just send me a PM through the LCWO forum. I'll help you get set up, and then its just a matter of scheduling a QSO date & time.
