Typing Assignment #3

It’s been a couple of days since I last posted.  Holiday, sinuses draining, just went to sleep.  It was kind of a dull holiday for me as a result, but I got some sleep and the sinuses sorted themselves out.  Yay!

The typing assignment #3 on Joe Van Cleave’s blog this week is to write a one page paper about youthful hang-outs.  I interpreted this to mean a place where I hung out when I was younger.  The place is long since gone, but the memories remain.

RIP Galaxy Pizza and Arcade.

Typing Assignment #2

The second typing assignment in Joe Van Cleave’s Typing Assignments series is  to describe what is unique and/or valuable about using a typewriter as a writing tool?

So, this post will be a bit shorter.  Today has been kind of busy.  It was the first day of the July Camp NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month).  Free agency of the NHL also started today.  I’m catching up on who is moving where (always interesting for me).

Below is my response to typing assignment #2.  I think I rambled on a bit.

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.
