Simple, Practical, and Common

Simple things we do all the time should be able to be done with very few keystrokes, but sometimes I find something I need to do makes me go, "There MUST be a better way." This challenge is just a simple movement and entering text at a certain place.

Start file
*temp var1 0
*temp var2 "hi"
*temp var3 -1
*temp var4 42
*temp var5 "asdf"
*temp var6 0
