I hate to fess up to this, but I can still dimly recall how to change the ribbon on one of these little contraptions..
I'm telling you, it comes back. Count it as an obvious mark of good character.
I love the sound of the manual typewriter. It is like music to my ears whenever I hear someone typing and rolling paper on it. But as a poet, I would always prefer writing my pieces on a paper. Even when time passed me by, and already in an assisted living (PA) I would still prefer the smell of a pen than of an ink or carbon. I find it more sincere and creative if it done manually which is also an advantage when I get to my senior. Housing (Pittsburgh) or in house poetry writing is a great sign of hope that poetry still exists in the hearts of some individuals.
You got fantastic nice ideas there. I made a research on the topic and got most peoples will agree with your blog.
Great post, indeed a manual typewriter is so good to work with, I only write on manual typewriters.
