Okay.

Then no, it's not good enough

I'm asking because I see you guys with your 120 WPM typing speeds and feel like a idiot. I'm 13 for reference.

If I helped you please mark my post as answer. I love fake internet points!

If you don't need a high amount of WPM to make money.

Why care.

Average across everyone is something like 50-60WPM, so you're above average technically. You're not far enough above average for bragging rights though.

For the age of 13, I'd say it's pretty solid. I couldn't type at all when I was 13 lol. Only now that I'm out of my 10's I'm starting to approach 100WPM

Well you won't be able to brag with 68 WPM. But on the bright side you will get better with time if you just keep writing.

It is also about how it is tested:

 

Reaching 68 wpm in a short test and mistakes aren't critical is easy.

Keeping up 68 wpm with less than 0.1% error rate over a timespan of 10 minutes is good.

People never go out of business.

You'll get even faster with practice.

It's solid for 13, but not great for online bragging rights. The main goal should just be to type fast enough so your typing speed isn't too much of a limiting factor while on a computer, and you can do it without thinking about it.

 

As with anything, it gets better with practice. Using AIM back in the day really improved my speeds.

It's what you write that matters, not how fast you write it.
