Catalina I have been typing a page almost daily(kind of) but failing to send in for one reason or another. I do plan on resending in my April 4th 2020 submission it being my first venture into OTP 🙂
Hi, Xicano. I’m glad to hear you’re still typing and will continue sending in. A couple of times you wrote some things I agreed with that I didn’t have the courage to say on OTP, for fear of causing offence, but then I saw, “Oh, it’s okay, Xicano’s said it for me.” Outside of my stories and poems I’m a mealy-mouthed coward…I won’t even say what I saw, but I was very glad that you said it. I’d written a poem about it instead which I decided not to send in.
I am so sorry that you feel that you cannot express yourself One Typed Page. But I truly understand. Do not worry I got this. You may not agree with all my stuff but no matter. We type what we think regardless and it is written. Out of the mind and onto the page can be scary. Take care.
I’d be honored if you’d send me your poem, One Typed Page. I will not expose anything and will keep to myself. Send if you’d like firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’d rather not I completely understand too.
Spacebar, I’m looking forward to reading more of your ramblings. Let it all hang out, my friend! You have space here to …err…. un-bar?
ps. I don’t have room for any of your emotional baggage on account of all my typewriters. They are everywhere, in every nook and cranny.
pps or is it pss? Yes, I’d buy that T-shirt. I love typewriter themed T-shirts.
!&?, Thank you for the warm welcome. I must say that of all the keys that I have to spend my life with, the “!” and the “&” and the “?” have always been my favorites. When I read your username, it just says it all doesn’t it? (and without using any words whatsoever!). Well done. I didn’t realize that there is ‘space’ here as well in the comments section. I somehow overlooked that (I get a little ‘spacey’ sometimes and overlook the obvious). That’s a very nice feature of OTP.
Hi, Xicano. I realise now that I accidentally signed myself ‘One Typed Page’ but it’s me, Leo Madigow. Maybe my subconscious was trying to keep my identity hidden. (Though, as you know, Leo Madigow is only an anagram.) I didn’t keep the poem; I tore it up, only yesterday, as it happens. My poems are submitted two or three weeks after I write them, usually, and looking at something I wrote, perhaps in anger, some time later, gives me better judgement about whether to send or not. As poems go, it wasn’t very good, so you’re not missing much. But trust me, you said what I wanted to say. When I wrote it, my hand was trembling. Not a good sign! Then, not once, but twice, you submitted pages that encapsulated how I felt on that subject, without mincing any words.
No worries Leo.
I see courage in your poems. I see alot in them. Keep sending in your gifts. My brother. Leo.
Spacebar, welcome. Typing and reading OTP can also cause dizziness, headache, flushing, or stomach upset may occur. Vision changes such as increased sensitivity to light, blurred vision, or trouble telling blue and green colors apart may also occur. If any of these effects last or get worse, or if an erection lasts more than 4 hours, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly….
Hi Catalina. Thanks so very much for the warm welcome, AND the FULL DISCLOSURE! I will have my doctor AND my pharmacist on speed dial just in case! 🙂
P.S. SUCH a beautiful a name you have Catalina….. I spend a lot of time with all the letters, but THAT is a very nice combination!
