Typing Assignment No.11



We had great participation in Assignment 10, which was open to any subject, including some typewriter art and poetry. For this next assignment we'll be writing on the subject of Halloween. It could be from any angle: history, personal accounts, fiction, even anti-Halloween. Whatever.

Have your assignment done and the link posted to the comments in this blog article, or the YouTube video, by Sunday, October 29. Alternatively, email the image as an attachment, to: jvcabacus@yahoo.com. Please ensure the photo image of your typewritten sheet is clear and easily readable, and that the link to the image is publicly accessible.

Going forward, I will continue this two week interval with assignments, hoping it will give you more time to complete without a mad rush at the very last.

If you have any suggestions for future assignment topics, let me know; I'm always open to new ideas. Happy writing!

If I get my programming class work done I just may write something strange like Edgar Allen Poe or a typewriter art of Bela Lugosi in one of his monster costumes.

was working in the lab late one night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
For my monster from his slab began to rise
And suddenly to my surprise
He did the mash
He did the monster mash

It's ALIIIVEEE!

Hi Joe,

Here's my story. We live in the Yanaka district near Ueno Park, which was a temple complex destroyed by the Battle of Ueno in 1868. Our guest in this story hearkens back to that time. Hope it gives everyone a little Halloween chill.

Hi Joe,

Typing Assignment #11, titled "A Halloween Mystery" typed on a 1953 Smith Corona Silent (with a script typeface).

This one was a lot of fun. Thanks for organizing these writing assignments. I appreciate the external "deadline"

Greetings Joe,
Thought I would try a 1959 SM3 for this assignment, what a great machine. Here is a link to my contribution. Thanks again.

Trick or Treat

Fond memories over many years, as a child, pre-teen, a parent, and now just a door answering spectator! Priceless experiences, and more to say than can fit into just one page. Thanks Joe! Happy Halloween!

Here is my submission to Typing Assignment # 11. It's late, but at least it's within the eight o'clock hour.

Hi Joe,

I submitted my post on this back on October 21st. But I didn't see it in tonight's YouTube summary. Was that too early, or did I screw up and not put a link to it in?

Michael; I hope I didn't miss you piece by mistake. I make every effort to sift through all my emails, comments here and on the You Tube video. Please send the piece to me and I'll include it in the results for the next assignment.

No worries. Next time there's an open submission, I'll use it then. Or save it for next Halloween? :)

It's here, for your amusement: https://dohaeng.com/2017/10/21/october-21-2017-typing-assignment-11/
