After loosing the last on1e I saw, there was finally a typewriter at the thrift store and during a 50% sale no less. I've been looking for a typewriter for so long because I want a way of distraction-free typing! Now I just need to figure out what to write first haha

Ooo what sort?

I used to have an old Remington (from I guess 1920s) in my bedroom (Im not really sure why, it was just there). I wrote a school paper on it once but the q key was broken and my paper was supposed to be about liquid so that sure annoyed the teacher :ozwomp:

Nice! Hope you have fun with it!

I have a typewriter somewhere in the house I inherited from my parents. I need a new ink ribbon or figure out how to add ink to the one already there.

I do love the very mechanical nature of them, though!

It's a 1998 Smith Corona! it's electric but has a manual mode that works just as well, and that sounds fun writing a school paper on a typewriter in the Yesterweb Server we were talking about taking notes on a typewriter.

Thank you! Mine came with an ink ribbon thankfully, but I looked it up online and they don't seem too expensive. They're very cool machines and it's interesting how they're both similar and different to modern keyboards!

Typewriters frankly are pretty cumbersome for extended writing like stories, but they make excellent novelty tools to write letters to other people. Have you considered getting a penpal? :ha:

I just wrote the first page of something and it wasn't too bad, I just probably need to outline first but I think I could work with it

I was thinking into looking for a pen pal actually! I've always thought writing letters was cool, but just my handwriting is abysmal haha

Typewriters are great! I googled the model you posted, and it looks like that one has a wonderful 90's aesthetic to it. I have one from ages ago, and I've used it for a few art projects, as well as for typing letters occasionally. Here's a very bad picture of it from the side. I think it's a Royal brand, but I can't be bothered to pull it out and check at the moment.:

Technology Connections just released a video on Typewriters, I thought it'd be fitting here.
