OLWG #196- Excerpt From a Screenplay (of sorts)

This week’s prompts are at the bottom (way down, so keep scrolling). Feel free to seize the prompts, twist them, form them, play with them as you will. All comers are welcome. The words below are just practice for me. I had a lot of fun writing them and, practice makes perfect.

Here’s how to play along, if you are unsure.

This week’s prompts are:

  1. the wetness of his soul
  2. I voted
  3. overcome the legacy

You can start writing whenever you want, just write – and have fun!

  1. An honest-to-God typewriter? Fun! Never got the hang of the manual. My father had an Olympus he adored, but learned to appreciate his “computer” (Brother word processor) until the day it crashed and deleted his novel. He never used it again. I went to college with a hand-me-down small typewriter about the same dimension of a large laptop, but I saved money to buy a 2nd-hand IBM Selectric. Have you seen the Tom Hanks documentary about typewriters? Enjoyable!


  2. I took typing my sophomore year of high school. We learned primarily on Royals and Brothers. At the end of the class I could type at the blazing speed of 57 words per minute with zero mistakes (that is what I did for my final exam). Last time I tested my speed on a computer keyboard I was at 130 wpm+.
    Keyboards are so much easier than typewriters!
    I have not seen the Tom Hanks documentary. I’ll see if I can find it! Thanks.


  3. The documentary is on Netflix. Forgot the name. I also took typing my Soph year. Always fair-to-middlin’ wpm. Still. My father never liked computer keyboards because he was so used to, as he put it, using his fingers as sledge hammers.

  4. I learned to type first on a manual in 6th grade, but soon after other typing classes had electric ones.
    Interesting the ‘light keyboards’ that some computers have – no sound. I think I read somewhere that engineers had to put the click clack back in because folks were so used to it. I do not miss the ‘bell’ nor having to adjust the settings. And what typewriter ever had auto-spell check. Total lifesaver! 😉
