Old School

The writer is an explorer: Every step is an advance into a new land - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ray's folks gave us this old typewriter, collecting dirt in their garage. We cleaned it up as best we could and now it sits atop my office shelf. As I click away on my keyboard, I can imagine the huge clack sound of those keys and the steady electric hum, then the ka-chunk noise of the carriage return. Creating on a typewriter just sounds grandiose.

I want to escape the unrest, to shut out the voices around me and within me, and so I write - Franz Kafka

Inspiration and perspiration = writing.

A good rule for writers: do not explain overmuch - W. Somerset Maugham
