Hello all my fearless Vinglers!
I'm hard at work on the letters for our Typewriter project. Three of them have been sent! Congratulations @Patmanmeow @Jason41 and @EasternShell! Please let me know the second you get the letters, just so I know I didn't accidentally send it to the wrong address.
This week, I'm finishing up letters for @RaquelArredondo @alywoah and @JordanHamilton, @PurpleChick @HarleyGeary and @AristaJ
You guys should get your letters by the end of next week!
I'm going a little bit crazy, because the clicking of the keys is almost hypnotic. I had to take a little break last week ,and that's why I'm doing the letters in batches, to avoid the craziness that comes with writing too damn much.
This update really has to do with the fact that writing letters, in the traditional sense is actually really hard. It makes your mind a little cuckoo as well, because each word has to be expressly deliberate, or else you have no choice but to start over. When you're using a typewriter though, it makes everything harder because you can't correct your mistakes.
That's why, you'll probably notice a few mistakes in your letters. Little tick marks and backspaces, it's alright! That's part of the process!
Thought they'd be more genuine with the mistakes included. You know, because life is just a series of mistakes, for me at least.
I've had to order some more ribbon for the thing, because I've reversed it a few times and the ink is starting to run out. Manual ink wears thin in some places so you'll notice some lighter letters and darker ones, it's just teh nature of the machine. Plus, I used the older ink reel on the first three letters so @Patmanmeow, @Jason41 and @EasternShell, you're getting the authentic typewriter experience.
I'm really excited to hear back from you guys, and maybe if we love the way this turns out we can start a little Vingle Pen Pal club? What do you all think?
Anyway, I'm off to a really good start and hope you all are having a great week!
I found one in a vintage shop and I stopped myself from buying it bcuz it would have been an expensive dust collector. It's a beautiful tool. The art of communication is breaking down. That's why l think this was a great idea. I purchased quills and ink just to see how it would feel. That didn't last long @jordanhamilton but it was fun.
@jordanhamilton those typewriters are the reason I didn't become a Secretary. I'm so thankful for technology. I can highlight and delete and erase the horror that was my work. They were fun but not if you had to draft a document.
I can't wait to receive my letter!!! I'll be out of town next week, but I will be anticipating it the moment I get back. I love the fact that you're writing them on your typewriter. So vintage!! I know you put a lot of love, thought and patience into these letters 馃挄
I got your letter and I can see the madness you've put in hehe. You did have some interesting points to the question I asked you too. A club would be great as well.
It's just a compilation of the daily affirmations I write, but I only picked the ones pertaining to love. I have yet to submit anything to create space, but the goal is to have a few hard copies to sell by or before my birthday.
