Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So I have a little money and I'm looking into buying a typewriter. The thing is, I don't really know much about typewriters, and I was hoping you guys could help me out.
I spend a lot of my time writing, but I (like a lot of folks) have a lot of trouble with distractions, the internet primary among them, and I'm hoping that having a means of writing that isn't by hand or on something that can access the internet will help me to be more productive. I do think typewriters are just generally pretty neat, but the real reason I want one is for actual usage.
What this means is I don't necessarily need something super antique-y and gorgeous and expensive--on the other hand, I don't want to spend my money on something dinky and cheap. I like nice things. It needs to be somewhat mobile in that I am not going to keep it in one place for the rest of my life, but I'm definitely not going to be hauling it outside with any regularity.
Does anyone have any tips, experience, good places to start looking?
