Typing Assignment #1

Hello, this is my first blog post! As part of an ongoing typewriter assignment on Joe Van Cleave’s blog, I am creating this blog so I can post my ramblings on typewriters, photography and possibly the occasional comment on life in general.

The first assignment was to anthropomorphize your typewriter and have it describe how it found you, and how it feels about it’s relationship with you, the writer.

My response to this assignment was to write about a new to me typewriter, the Smith Premier No. 4.  Its serial number puts the date of manufacture in 1901 and it is the new oldest machine that I own.  See the image below for what I typed.

I had fun with this assignment and am preparing for Typing Assignment #2 which I will include in another post.
