Typewriter vs. Computer

From 1984 to 2013 I was a secretary in a New York City government job. In the early years of my working career I used a typewriter. Now that I’m retired I’m venturing out to write my memoir. Working on my memoir I use a computer, laptop or iPad. These items all come with distractions. I find myself often tempted to stop writing and scroll through the internet or check my emails.

Back in the day when I used a typewriter to construct my poems, stories and plays I had less distractions. All I had to do was type to get my thoughts on the paper. I was much more focused and committed to writing. Right now I’m feeling the need to go back to what worked for me in my writing process. I’m thinking of buying a manual typewriter and going to the park and sit and type.

I am a writer. I started writing in my teens. I recently became serious with my craft after participating in a free 7-Day Book Writing Challenge provided by Hay House. I now have a paid membership to Hay House Writing Community. I'm on my way to being a published author. I also enjoy mobile photography and golfing.
