I do my talking with a typewriter

Like my work, which I do on the seat of my pants, that’s the way I do my talking -- with a typewriter in front of me.
E. L. Moore to George R. Johnson from a letter dated 22 January 1968.

I wonder if E. L. Moore ever had the problem shown in this video? 

I pity the poor damned writer who says he can’t wait for “inspiration” but has to dog it regular hours every day. Me, I just write what I damned please and when I damned please and that’s the way I like it.

    1. It's amazing the number of videos there are on the internet about typewriters. Now, if I could just find ELM's typewriter :-)
