This gorgeous device will be mine soon. A friend (Thank you, Rosie!) stumbled across it on Oxfam and knew I was thinking of buying one. It was love at first sight.
My reasons are as follows:
- No distractions. No Facebook or Twitter or Reddit or Memes. I will write more.
- No batteries needed.
- I loveÂ the idea of taking it to Clapham Common to sit on the grass while I type out my thoughts. I’ll probably meet new friends because of this.
- You get that lovely ding when you end a sentence.
- I can send typewritten letters (and envelopes) to people – which is rare these days. This makes my letters stand out more when writing to people I wish to impress.
- It looks really cool.
I’ll be sure to scan in the very first thing I write on it for the digital world to enjoy.
It’ll sit proudlyÂ next to my new Go-Pro on my desk.
Update: 13 July 2016
It arrived. I just spend all day figuring out how to use some cutting edge software and now I’m going to spend my evening seeing if I can figure out Erika. We shall see!
