underwood five typos

Imagine a blizzard – you are in an isolated, two room, mountain cabin, with no electricity, no computer or cell phone. Your car is buried; a mound of snow the only evidence that it is parked outside. You’ve tried shoveling, but it’s pointless.

So you build a fire in the wood stove to keep warm.



And discover this Underwood Five with a fresh ribbon on the desk, next to a pile of typewriter paper.

Write a letter to someone you’ve lost – with typos, there is no ‘erase’ or ‘delete’, and you can’t find ‘white out’.  Use the typos to reveal the subtext (what’s really going on).
