In good company

Skipping around the internet this morning I came across this fantastic site. While I don’t for one second presume to be in the league of these writers, I felt in good company this morning, as I look at the pile of paper on my desk and ready myself for the last of the proofreading.

I suddenly feel the urge to look for vintage typewriters on eBay :)

From the top: Anais Nin, Simone de Beauvoir, Carson McCullers, Jack Kerouac, Richard Ford. Unfortunately there were no photographer credits for these photos, but I couldn’t resist sharing them :)

    Just for fun can you do a B&W self portrait at your desk working on the book and add it to the post? That would be fantastic!
