Writing is my passion. Without question, it is one of the things in my life that gives me purpose. Not only did I go to school for writing, but I also do a lot of it! My birthday is coming up on the 24th and my boyfriend spoiled me with an early present. Why did I get it early? He wanted me to be able to use it before my trip to Los Angeles. (So sweet!) So, what was my early birthday gift? A typewriter!
It’s not just any typewriter, though. It’s a really old portable typewriter - with a case and an extra ribbon. When I opened it, I was so excited. Not only was I happy about the typewriter itself, I was overwhelmed by all of the support my boyfriend has given me. He truly believes in my dream. Plus, he wants me to write for myself…not just for a paycheck. In that moment, I felt so loved and blessed. It was the best gift I’ve ever received.
I love my typewriter so much. Whenever I use it, I feel this indescribable energy. It’s amazing how a machine can make you feel so connected and inspired. Each day, I’ve been trying to give myself at least fifteen minutes to write something…. anything. With all of the work that I do, it’s good to remember why I do it! I am so grateful to have such a caring and generous person in my life. It is a birthday gift that I will always cherish.
Do you love writing? What do you think of this typewriter?
