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.
