involving q imopssible. Not good.
Another solution would be to remap Esc in normal mode
to suppress its visual bell:
:nmap <esc> <nop>
This does not make Escape key nearer, but it gets rid of
visual bell when you use Esc in response to 'Press Enter'.
Regarding remote nature of Esc key, I solved it for myself by
I using mini-keyboard, 28x10cm. I love it. Everything is nearer
on such keyboard, fingers need to travel less. I heard other people
remap Esc key to some other less distant key.
