Newbie here.

Just popping in to say hi. 

My name is Darla I'm from Michigan but originally from Ohio.  Married almost 25 years and mom of twin boys who will be 22 in a few months. 

Im currently 48 and have been hard of hearing all my life but have never learned ASL.  Now thanks to the internet and increased ASL information and tutorials available online I just started to learn. 

I've always wanted to learn but never did as life got the in the way or I felt insecure (never liked to try new things or something out of the norm as afraid someone would make fun of me - which stems from being made fun of by other kids when growing up). But I just figure there is always a reason we never know of and it just feels that now is the right time.  So I'm learning 👍🏻

I found this forum and am hoping that when I have questions someone can help me out.  

Right now I know some words and can finger spell. It's slow but it's progress after only 4 days.  My current question bugging me is if in the middle of signing I realize I goofed up used incorrect sign what do I do to basically say I made that in error or I goofed up?  In speech you just correct yourself, on TTY or relay you type *** so what do I do when signing? 

Thanks..

    • Hi Everyone,    I'm a teacher dealing with changing times, so I figured I would take ASL (something I always wanted to do). I took Sign 101 in college and it was horrible. Terrible teacher. I'm pretty much teaching myself. It's hard being the student and not the teacher. 😔
    • Hi, I'm a novelist, and in one of my series, I have a deaf character. Here are a few sentences from my latest book. Could someone confirm that I am describing this ASL correctly?     Carly’s eyes also filled with tears, something that rarely happens. One spilled down her cheek. “I’m okay with those photos, but what about you, bro?”     I pointed to my chest and slid my hand down, then put the four fingers of my right hand against my chin and pulled them away into the palm of
    • Hi, everyone! If any of you are available on the weekends, I could chat with you on Zoom.  I'm still finding out if my workplace will re-open next week so if they don't, I could do weekdays too.
