Well, for one thing, I've wanted to get my hands on a beautiful vintage typewriter for quite some time now. There are days when I want to turn off all my gadgets. I get nostalgic and romantic and want to flip time back and be able to be a writer peering over a typewriter, carefully choosing every word and phrase I write so that I wouldn't have to rip out the sheet of paper and start all over again.
And that brings me to the heart of it: carefully choosing words. In my idealist view of the typewriter I see it as a tool that forces the writer to not ramble off the first ho-hum sentence that comes to mind but consider her thoughts more attentively.
So this is my attempt of taking a fast-paced arena like the blog and forcing myself to slow down my thoughts enough that I consider the world around me more attentively. And if you happen to stumble upon a lovely old typewriter, please do send it my way.
