No Correction Ribbon

No Correction Ribbon is another receptacle for my mental oversplash. Originally, I had intended to write random pieces of flash fiction and post them on an anonymous Tumblr account, but decided that wasn’t interesting. Instead, using an old typewriter I obtained recently, I began fleshing out short pieces of flash fiction on paper, taking pictures of said pieces and posting them on the Tumblr like so.


The idea was that I had no ability to backspace, or edit what I had written and the result was an unadulterated draft of writing complete with misspellings, grammatical errors, blemishes and all. Each piece is an interesting exercise as the machine forces you to linearize your thought process while thinking a few steps ahead, a far cry from using today’s wordprocessors where the story develops before you like photograph.
