typewriter, typewriter in a dish


Mr. Rowe hard at work with his new (old) method. Just so the writing group is ready for those typewritten photocopies. It's so old school and after you get over the loudness of the banging keys, soothing.

    That's awesome.

    I started my writing career on a manual typewriter, actually ... wrote 155 pages, single-spaced with no margins, in a month-to-six-week period in my bedroom in 1989. (Shows you what kind of life I had in high school). It's the most productive I've ever been ... had I kept that up, I'd have won a Pulitzer by now, or else I'd be Stephen King.

    Something about the manual action of the keys, the feel of the pressure, just makes you want to keep going. I'm envious.

    If you're that envious, you can borrow the one under my desk (identical to Mr. Rowe's except it's blue).

    Yes, we have matching typewriters -- with handy portable cases. Shut up. We bought them at some store full of used stuff in Asheville not long after we started going out. Anyone who mocks will completely get a typed letter from me in the mail.

    Oh, man, I wasn't going to say anything, but I totally want a typed letter from you in the mail. It's just so retro. I mean ... my God. Stamps!

    Matching typewriters ... that so cute. :-)
