Staring at a blinking cursor.

Upon this occasion I sit to write and notice myself spacing out and staring at the blinking cursor. What did writers of old stare at when they were using a typewriter?

I can remember taking a typing course in high school and using typewriters. It provided a satisfying clacking while working. It makes me wonder how much of the allure went away when technology made the typewriter obsolete.

It’s just one more way I’m a man out of place in time, I guess.
