A disaster occurred this week. I had a massive panic attack, and then my ribbon broke.
A typewriter operates with the keys, and a ribbon laden with ink. One cannot work without the other.
I sat there, writing my letter to @jordanhamilton and then bam!
No ink. The page, bare, stuck in the middle of a sentence. I was furious.
So I went online and did some research. Low and behold, I found some reseller online who creates repurposed typewriter ribbons. So I ordered some.
I don't like making excuses, but The last few recipients will have to wait a bit longer for their letters. By God, with rush shipping, the ribbon should arrive by Saturday, and your letters by Monday.
You see, I didn't plan on putting as much effort into this as I have. I've written three and four drafts of each letter because for some reason, when I see those words on the page they mean so much more than I thought they would.
I care deeply about the requests you've put in. And I want the letters to turn out well. Creative, insightful, funny. You know?
I want it to be professional and meaningful.
So, with a little fear and loathing I have to extend my own deadline. Because life shouldn't be about getting things done. Anything worth doing, is worth doing right.
So here are the logistics:
* @PurpleChick your letter is done! Please reply to my message so I can send it to you!
Round II of the Typewriter Project will start on April 1st! So all of my waiting list brethren, have no fear, your time will come.
In the mean time, make sure to follow The Typewriter Project collection Here. And if you're interested in writing your own letters, or reacting to some that have already been written, let me know!
As always, keep searching and I hope you guys have an incredible day.
