Like to backspace, do ya? Try freewriting!

Imagine a world without a ‘backspace’ key. From 1808 until the advent of the computer, this was a reality. Typewriters are as cool as it gets for writers.

I’m getting movie ideas lately, but I’ll be darned if I can put them together. Hey. When did I want to start writing movies? This is … Continue reading
