Trying to increase my cw speed reminds me of this girl I use to date, FRUSTRATED!
Some days I just can not seem to copy no matter how many hours each day I work on it. Cranked my practices up to 47wpm yesterday and I was able to pull calls out. Even cranked it up to 50wpm and got AA0IF, plain as day but today it's a different story. I'm making mistaked at 37wpm.

BINGO! After reading your post, I understood that I may have been pushing too hard and expecting an increase in speed in too short of time.
In order to straighten my brain out, I copied call signs at a speed I am very comfortable with (38wpm) and had more than a 90 percent success rate. I did this for 2 hours straight and half way throught it, something clicked. I went over to Rufz to test myself and sure enough I was in a zone again.
I came back to LCWO and did another personal best moving me up 6 spots.
Just when you think all hope is gone, encouragement comes from friends that are so interested in seeing someone that is working hard; being successful.

I wish you would have left your original post to me. It has some useful analytical info in your post concerning mistakes that I made in regards to biting off too much.
I meant to go back and re-read it so I won't let it happen again. I try to learn from my mistakes.
Your post appears to have gone to HST Heaven.

I realised that it could be interpreted as a less friendly text for a lot of people the website is installed for by the owner dj1yfk. I noticed you personally read it short after publication, and hence I decided to erase it.
