Days of Typewriters Past

Before keyboards and computers

there were typewriters

transforming words into books

curious machines with odd looks

there were once

keyboard typewriters

single-element typewriters

Type Bar typewriters

Index typewriters

Teletype typewriters

and Electric typewriters

once valuable tools for writers

they’ve gone away

mere curiosities today

but once upon a time

you couldn’t write a poem

a news story or a book

without these machines

no matter how funny they look

Poetic Tips To Writing Your Autobiography

Let me state for the record that I haven’t written my autobiography and you’d probably be smart not to listen to me

because you continue to read this missive promising a positive evaluation of your life by simple grammatical manipulation, it’s time for exploration

What is the one thing you want people to remember you for? One glorious achievement or more? Begin your tome with tales of yore

when you sailed the seas of life and road the winds of strife, and how you were a good husband, or wife

Make sure to save space for those favorite songs that always took you to another place

Let the world know how unique you are even though you’re not famous or a movie star

another consideration is when you go on a writing spree who do you think your readership will be?

don’t forget to share your friends and family in this autobiography if you don’t want people to think your writing a hagiography
