Mom’s Writing Tools

This is a comment that Mom wrote on a blog I had. It’s dated November 7, 2008 at 6:53 pm. She was 84 years old.

“I started writing with a pencil and a big chief tablet with lines across the pages. Now I am writing on a computer and posting online. In between I advanced to writing with pen and ink, ballpoint pens, typewriters, improved typewriters, Cannon Starwriter 80 word processors, I wore out at least three, so the repair tech. said.

I began to receive requests to teach others my writing ideas. What a thrill! I also had five daughters who gladly critiqued my ramblings. Now I’m on my 4th computer with grammar, spellchecker, and a grandson who keeps my computers doing what they are supposed to do. What writer would ask for more!” Mom

  1. My mom bought herself a new computer for her 80th birthday. Unfortunately she died later that year but she and Gail inspire me. You are never too old to learn the latest technology. What an example they are to all of us.
