    That’s why people needed all that caffeine—to give them the energy to lug around their Smith Coronas.

    I wrote my first (and probably last) novella on a typewriter. You would never dream of using it in a public place. The whole point of the writing experience (in those days) was to be alone with your thoughts and the simple, bucolic, machine-gun sounds of the typewriter. :)

    Tending to be a bit of an antiquarian myself, I’ve often thought about getting a typewriter to use for myself, but the thing that keeps stopping me is the simple logistics of it—because typewriters are no longer a thing, it’s a pain in the neck to find the necessary parts to maintain one, and, of course, a lot more costly than it was. Sticking with the computer really was, admittedly, the more practical option in the end, sadly.
