The Invasion of The Big Roll of Paper

I was able to find a little inspiration and start working on a short story featuring a library, a 40s Royal Quiet De Luxe, and some near-future speculative fiction.

"Bow Arts" is an intentional mistake. I know it's Beaux Arts.
All part of a cunning plot twist.


  1. wow, that'd be a heck of a typecast if you were to scan it all in :D

    Are you interested in a 1968 Olympia SM 9 for your Classroom Typewriter Project? How about if it doesn't have a case? If you don't care about the missing case, I'll bring it to the Type-In for ya. (:

  2. Impressive!

    You're inspiring me to use a BARP if I try NaNoWriMo again.

  3. Ted, thanks so much for the offer. Yes we will take it! I am excited and I am sure that the kids will be too.

  4. That looks like quite a story. I like the BAROP look.
    Say, do you have anything written up about the typewriter project or is it all here in the blog?
    I'd like to see if there's any interest around here and would like to trot out some of your findings to support it.

  5. I am working on a one page summary of the project. Much of what will be included in that document is available in the archives. I'll put together a list of links in the Findings of the Project page. I hope that you get typewriters into the hands of youths.
