I'm so proud of myself. I finally have a solid first draft on the story I've been wrestling with for months. (Isn't it awful that it takes me THAT LONG to just figure out what the hell wants to happen?) I'm revising for structure right now, mainly--trying to get all the good stuff to happen in the right places--but it's just such a relief to have a story at all. It's like a milestone when I switch from typewriter to computer (I do all my drafting on a typewriter where I can't go back and change shit, because otherwise I'll fiddle with my first sentence all day and never get anything done).

YAY!

That's exactly why I wanted a typewriter. But now one of the spool thingies won't turn and the ribbon gets tangled up, and I can't figure out how to fix it.

Yeah, I need new ribbons, but I have no idea where to get them in Madisonville, Kentucky, you know?

Is your typewriter manual or electric?

manual. It's hard to type on but i'd be cool with that if the spools would just turn
