I like A, because A is the first letter in the alphabet, and my name begins with A, and it kind of looks like a Christmas tree, or a ladder built by someone who isn't very handy, and it points upwards, and I only have to use my pinky finger to type it, and . . .

Don't blame me, folks!

I'll have to go home and look. My lap top has some worn keys and then I can tell you. But isn't E the most common letter?

Q - because I like to stretch my pinky now and then.

On my laptop, it's the down arrow key b/c it beats trying to scroll with the touchpad (esp on AW.)

Though, I'm going to have say that delete is probably my most used key. I don't know if I have a favorite, per se.

I'd say it's a toss up between F and J because they have the little ridges on them to let me know the rest of my fingers are on the right keys.

Unless you write fantasy. Then it would be Y.

W

Mostly because I use my PC for gaming as well as writing, and W is generally used for "move forwards". :)

I write fantasy. Why Y?

To many adverbs? Is that a rip on my adverb use? :rant:

I am so tempted to say "666." But then again, I'm evil.... :D

Mine's that one in the top left with three symbols on it -- the backwards apostrophe, the horizontal line with the little drop at the right end, and the big colon. There's something mysterious and forgotten about it. Why is it there? What does it do? No one knows.... *Twilight Zone music*

I think my favourite letter must be the F... It has to be, the F-key actually fell off my last keyboard :D

fantasy - I took it to mean the word fantasy

My favorite key on the keyboard is T since it's close and I can stretch my index finger to smack it. Y with the other hand, same reason.

Which is why Y is my favourite letter.

Unless it's U, the letter Americans love to forget. :tongue

And it is alley's fault. :D

@ it's a very friendly, welcoming symbol.

& is also good, very inclusive.

B is, of course, a benevolent letter

I like the "\" for that very same reason.

It's also what the little green frog did one day.

Yeshanu says it's your fault AC, who are we to believe? :)

B - because it's at the end of my password that unlocks my keyboard. I love to hit it and see my cyberworld open before my eyes. :tongue

Not a letter, but: `~

Rarely needed, and always hit by accident when you really mean to his ESC. Lonely characters born out of destruction.

Apparently it's the letter N because it's completely worn off. With M a close second. none of the other letters are worn off at all. apparently i've been writing stories consisting only of mmnmnmmnmnmnmnmn

Someone's already mentioned the forgotten ~` key, so I'll be nice and say my favorite key is the |\ one. Poor thing never gets used on my keyboard.

Ode to the |\ key:
|\|\|\|\
|\|\|\|\

And just for grins:
~`~`~`

I'll have to go with 'backspace,' or maybe I just make a lot of typos I have to correct as I go...

Not sure what it's for but it starts spinning when it's near the Bermuda Triangle . . . or any TV broadcasting anything to do with Ryan Seacrest.
