Picture of James Franco in Howl

Do You Own a Typewriter?

I just watched the new trailer for the Allen Ginsberg biopic Howl on Buzz, and I'm really looking forward to seeing it. The performances look fantastic, and the script seems engaging. Seeing James Franco writing poems at his typewriter reminded me of how much I used to love playing around with my parents' old IBM Selectric. As frustrating as it was to start from scratch when I needed to edit my writing, or use that very obvious white-out, I did always love the sound of the keys clicking up and down and the distinct impression the ink made on my letter paper. It would be fun to own one again. Do you have one?

I've wanted one since I was five, but never actually did get one. I love the way they look, the sound they make.. Still hoping I stumble on one that works properly and write my first novel on it. I am a sucker for old-fashioned technology. Record players, cassettes, old cameras.. Just as long as I get to keep my MacBook and iPod.

I don't have one, but I wouldn't mind one. Might help bring inspiration for all those papers I have to write.
