A Passion to Write
George is not my friend's real name, but I'm certain he'll recognize himself when he reads this.
As for my sporadic writing, I've found, at least for this week, that the inclusion of the L.A.R.O.P. into my typing methodology has freed myself up to write more spontaneously and more often. I have several pieces, unposted as blog articles, that were written just because I felt like writing them, almost like journal entries, and the Remington sits on my office table with L.A.R.O.P. paper already threaded in its platten, ready to go at a moment's notice.
As for the mechanics of using the L.A.R.O.P., I've found that the thin paper tears off easily, at the end of a piece of writing, by using the square cross-sectioned paper bale in front of the platen.
The ink got a bit thin at the bottom of the scroll, the Remington's ribbon feed remains problematic.
