Typing Assignment No.6



Midway through last week I put together the video for Typing Assignment No.6, and failed in my haste (and work schedule) to post the accompanying blog article, which this represents. But you are a resourceful lot, and have already figured out, many of you, that you can post a link to your written work as a comment to the video itself.

For those of you traditionalists, or those sticklers for exactitude, please leave a comment below with a link to your written piece.

And, as usual, should you have issues with either method, feel free to email me with your piece as an attachment, if that works better for you.

We all have someone in our lives who represents a story waiting to be told. That story could be uplifting, or not. But that's the way true-to-life stories are; not all fairy tales and happily-ever-after and Prince (or Princess) Charming. But a story, waiting to be told, as a typed, one-page composition. It's your story, to share with others. I'll be looking forward to seeing your story, studying it and making notes to myself for the post-slideshow talk within the upcoming video.

I haven't yet ran out of ideas for upcoming typing assignment themes; but if you do have something you'd like to see us tackle, please leave a comment below and I'll be happy to consider it.

Happy writing. Keep fingers on keys and the ribbon properly spooled in the machine.

Thank you Joe for this great assignment. I'm posting it here and on the video link to make sure it doesn't get missed. It's about my brother-in-law Len.

Joe, this was a tough assignment. It was a journey back to a different time in my life, almost 30 years ago. I wrote pages. The memories flooded back. The hardest part..was to condense it down to one page. This story alone could fill volumes of so many experiences and adventures almost impossible to tell. These assignments are very satisfying and enjoyable. Thank you.

So many notable people to choose from! And having made the choice - how to describe? This was the toughest of the assignments. Great selection Joe.

This was typed on an Olivetti Underwood Typemaster. I can't find a listing for the year, so I don't know what year it was made. In Fairbanks, Alaska I traded my light blue Olympia SM7 (high school graduation present) for the Typemaster because of the script font.
