One year ago… I thought about buying a manual typewriter.  In March of 2012 I finally did.  By the end of March I started Blogging…

Before I sat down behind the keyboard of my Olympia I was unable to write with the same joy or passion I had in High School or College.  Time seemed to have robbed me of that simple pleasure of putting words together.  This changed when I pressed the key of a manual typewriter for the first time in three decades.

I must have broken through my writer block since I am using a computer keypad to augment my typecast… but I will not be silly enough to walk away from the source of my creativity because the stream of verbage flows once more.  There are so many more typewriters waiting to be touched… and words to appear on pages like magic.

So lets begin with my continued affair with the 1923 3-Bank Underwood Portable.

Nothing like siting over the keyboard of a 1923 Underwood 3-Bank Portable Typewriter.

  1. Well said! When it comes right down to it, the single best reason to use a typewriter is: FUN.

  2. Richard: Thank you very much… I am having a great time with my machines of joy.

  3. Well said indeed! I still have to discover the fun of typing, since I enjoy the cleaning too much. But who would’ve thought I would ever have fun cleaning something? Cruise control is very familiar, writing feels exactly like that.
