Time Travel

Producing the blog, at my end, has taken on hints of time travel.

For the first 18 months I resided in the 1970's, using a word-processor. For the past 6 months I revisited the scholastic Middle Ages - pen and paper.  Today, I have leapt forward to the late 19th century having finally taken possession of a manual typewriter.

I suspect that the average blogger doesn't have this experience!  And this ever shifting technology base has a real effect on my output. Writing by hand meant that the editor had to decipher and type my posts, a dedication that I could only repay by avoiding long posts.

The typewriter will be a great help but I have to wonder if the prison service will ever allow me to use contemporary technology?

Ed's note:this is a great relief as his writing is terrible!  I can now scan what he sends me into Word. A big thank you to the kind blog reader who donated the typewriter.

  2. Congrats on the typewriter. They are really necessary. For exaple, if you travel somewhere, you may want to keep a diary with everything that happens. Last year I started one in my trip to Argentina. The lady who got me the apartment for rent in buenos aires gave it as a welcome present and I started to write. A one point I realized I could not stop!
    A typewriter would have been great!
