A typewriter wouldn't do this.

I feel this way often while sitting in front of this computer. Like the noise of the fan inside the tower...my typewriter doesn't do that!

Typewriters do not do many of the annoying things PCs do.

Something the old Laptopasaurus would do before I replaced it was lag as I was trying to type, sometimes taking five minutes to post three sentences. It would also randomly cut text, or I would click 'post' and lose the entire blog.

My beloved typewriters would NEVER do that! I write something on them and it's hard-copy. It's permanent. Nothing on the internet is ever permanent, no matter how much a site owner or data host will try to convince you. I would work for months on short-stories, posting them on writing sites...only to attempt to log in one day and find the whole site gone. Just gone.

Which is why my books are being written on typewriters.

So true!

That's true, but then no-one can read your blog on a typewriter...
