1977 IBM Selectric II

Got this lovely blue monster on eBay and somehow shipping didn't kill it!

I use this beauty for NaNoWriMo ... partly because the OCR scanning comes out better than with a cloth ribbon machine and partly because it's such a delight to type on and is easy on the fingers even over many hours of typing.

Writer. Proofreader. Scapegoat.

I'm happy to own 11 typewriters currently. Two are models from my childhood: a Royal Signet portable (my first typewriter when I was about 10), and an Underwood TM-5 (used in 9th grade typing class circa 1975).

I use my IBM Selectric II to win NaNoWriMo every year now and LOVE it. The older models (including a 1954 Skyriter, a 1920s Underwood, and a Royal KMM) are currently being used to type letters to new penpals who are all interested in reviving snail-mail letter writing.
