INTERVIEWER What is your instrument in composing? You are one of the few writers I know who still uses an electric typewriter. What's wrong with a personal computer?
I've tried. There is too much temptation to go over the copy and rewrite I guess I've never grown accustomed to the silent, non-clacking of the keys and the temporary words put up on the screen. I like to think that when I type something on this [pointing to the typewriter], when I'm finished with it, it's good. I haven't gotten past the second paragraph on a word processor. Never go back and rewrite while you're working. Keep on it as if it were final.
Thanks to Amy Freeborn.
