How to be a Writer – Part Three

So you want to be a writer, eh? Alright. Okay. Fair enough. But you can’t first become a writer without first picking up some supplies. Here’s what you’re going to need:

  • 1 table
  • 1 chair
  • 1 typewriter (Smith-Corona)
  • 1 inkwell
  • Black ink (two quarts)
  • 6 pens (feather)
  • 1 eraser
  • Reams of paper (3 or 4)
  • Typewriter ribbons (several)
  • a Thesaurus
  • 1 Garbage Can (Large)

You’ll also want to keep a bottle of cheap gin at the ready – at all times.

Once you have these things? You’re almost ready to write. Soon, the student will become the master!!

A comic, screenwriter and poet, I grew up in Northwest Minnesota. Years later, I earned my MFA in Creative Writing from Hamline University in St. Paul. I've been a guest on KFAI’s Write On! Radio and Prairie Public Radio’s Main Street. I have a new book out called Comedy Album. If you wished to do so, you could buy it.
