The Great American Novel

Don't you agree with me on this:

If I (or you) had this cool, totally Retro, LIME GREEN typewriter ... couldn't I (or you) write the next Great American Novel?

Really. I mean, who COULDN'T with a typewriter like this?

If you don't quite believe me, would you trust artists' and writers' guru, JULIA CAMERON?

"It is human nature to write," Ms. Cameron declares as she systematically dismantles the mythology surrounding the writing life in our culture. She reveals the secrets of breaking loose from the grip of established thought processes and shows you how to unleash the wave of creativity within you that is starving to express itself. With the techniques and illustrative stories in The Right to Write, you'll learn how to make writing an easy, natural, intensely personal part of your life. Ms. Cameron's revolutionary instruction and examples include the details of her very own writing processes, the ones she uses to create her poetry, plays, essays, and novels. Her tools make writing a playful and practical, as well as profound, experience. If you're jumping into the writing life for the first time, or if you're already living it, the art and craft of writing will never be the same for you after you've read The Right to Write." { http://search.barnesandnoble.com/booksearch/isbnInquiry.asp?r=1&ISBN=9781585420094&ourl=The%2DRight%2Dto%2DWrite%2FJulia%2DCameron }

So I think that this way cool retro typewriter could be just the key (get it? the KEY) to your taking up WRITING. Seriously.

I'm just saying.
