A couple weeks ago, I received an email from David Wells, creator of the Vermont Vintage Typewriter website, with his latest article. In it, he shared his submission to Joe Van Cleave’s “Typing Assignment.” Last week, another email arrived, with David’s submission to the second assignment. I kept the emails as new, wanting to refer back to them and consider this Typing Assignment project.
Today was the day. I didn’t read David’s submissions, not wanting to be influenced by them. Instead, I went directly to Joe Van Cleave’s blog. I found the article and video describing the purpose of this project.
Okay. Sounds good. Though I’ve never been a writer who has been inspired by writing prompts, I have been looking for a way to give my typewriters more use. Their function lately has been to address envelopes.
This is Typing Assignment #1
Well, too late to include it on his website, I decided to do this just to get started on this project. My hope is that I’ll be timely for Assignment #3.
Here’s my response to this first Typing Assignment.
