  1. I am actually interested in getting a typewriter, but they do seem like costly equipments. I’ve tried everything from pens, to pencils, to Scrivener and Word, but the typewriter is the only thing left from the writer’s quiver that I’ve yet to try. Thanks for this inspiring post!

    1. Stuart — thank you for reading and commenting.

      Depending on where you live, most antique stores will have some kind of affordable typewriter in good working order. The problem is where a store wants too much for the machine just because it’s “old.” A good solid machine, in good working order, should be about $50-75. With a new ribbon, a little oil and fresh slug cleaning — it will be like new. Whatever you decide to buy, just make sure it’s in good shape. Good luck!
