Scott, this is great! It's almost like a dream that's already in the back of my mind.Are you going to participate in NaNoWriMo? Sure hope so! This is already a riveting start to a novel. ;-)
I'm thinking of it... but I'm not sure if I have the time or the mental fortitude to really do it. But I have other stories I'd like to develop in that time... Glad you're enjoying this!
Every bit of this is amazing. From the storyline, to the use of all of us as characters, to the medium it is presented in! Please keep it up. I am glad to see others sharing their writing, and I have to second Cameron; Nano!
Thanks Ken... Just setting the scene still. The real plot is yet to come!
This is fantastic, keep it up. It's reassuring to know that we are all keeping our typewriters at hand in this emergency!I think the Typist's Creed must be going through my mind as I clean my Sholes Visible. And just in case anyone has forgotten it, here it is.This is my typewriter. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My typewriter is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My typewriter, without me, is useless. Without my typewriter, I am useless. I must type true. I must write better than my enemy who is trying to outwrite me. I must outwrite him before he outwrites me. My typewriter and myself know that what counts in writing is not the number of sheets we type, the noise we make, nor the ribbons we wear out. We know that it is the words that count. My typewriter is human, even as I, because it is my life. Thus, I will learn it as a brother. I will learn its weaknesses, its strength, its parts, its accessories, its carriage and its keys. I will ever guard it against the ravages of weather and damage as I will ever guard my legs, my arms, my eyes and my heart against damage. I will keep my typewriter clean and ready. We will become part of each other. Before God, I swear this creed.
This is amazing! I have yet to hear this, and I am surprised at this. Thanks for bringing it to my attention. Really, though, I imagine that must have been playing through your head as you tweaked that Sholes.
Thanks Richard! Oh, that's some interesting writing there... You know. I think you got where I was going there quite well. I'll try and not kill off your Sholes :D (BTW... your car is about to come to grief in the next ep though).
Morning Scotty!Probably a bit late to chime in, but I just wanted to say that I can't wait to read more of this fantastic story!
