Book review: As It Ends, by Denise Terriah

Terriah has some good, solid reasons for using a typewriter:

"When I write on a computer I'll save what I'm doing, second-guess, then rewrite half of it before I ever get started with the day's work. The more I've written, the more I second-guess and re-write. ...

"Secondly, I like a hard-copy of my work. I don't trust computers not to lose files, or me not to accidentally overwrite, or forget to save something important.

"The third reason I do it is that when I start work on my second draft I can't be lazy about it. Every page has to be typed onto the computer. When I'm doing that I have to go over every sentence."

Here are Denise Terriah's website, Facebook page, and Instagram feed.

You can buy As It Ends on Amazon.


  1. Interesting.
    I've got to get a copy of the book.

  2. As well as being a writer I really want to read now, she has an awesome set of tee shirts

  3. I’ve purchased a copy and look forward to reading it. There is an obvious connection to the cold hard type project.

    1. I think you'll enjoy it. Yes, too bad that Denise Terriah and I weren't aware of each other before the deadline for CHT.
