Writers of a Certain Age

Writers of a certain age have come a long way from Underwood and Royal typewriters and the actual cutting and pasting when moving paragraphs about. Having done that with Scotch tape or staples gives a real appreciation of the ease of formatting and printing out work at the end of the day. And now, in this cyberage that still feels so new to so many, getting published is as easy as creating a blog and going at it. Nothing new in these thoughts but only the coming again wonderment of the ease in the trappings of writing, of putting something down (however good or bad) and hitting the Publish Post button for any to stumble across in cyberspace. Interesting times, these.

  1. Oh, yeah, lot's to be said for the ease of correcting and editing manuscripts these days, but underneath that I still miss the old Royal portable I used to have, the one with the broken 'e' that always got hard workouts on those nights before papers were due.
