Rooftop typing

by | Aug 29, 2015 | Gossen | 10 comments

I need exercise, so every day I’ve been hiking ten flights of stairs to the top of Schott Hall, the tallest building on the Xavier University campus. The other day there was no one on the rooftop patio but me and my Gossen Tippa Pilot. The weather was perfect and it would be hard to imagine a nicer spot for some typing.
I was commissioned to write a story titled “Ten Reasons to Still Use a Typewriter.” I’ll let you know when it appears online. I figured I’d be an utter hypocrite if I didn’t write the story by typewriter—and I think I did produce a strong first draft.

After typing, I enjoyed the view.

    For more exercise, you should take the RC Allen up there. ;)

    You're going to make me want to take up tobacco.

    Spectacular view (of the Tippa, and the campus ain't half bad neither) :D

    Wish I had a place like that, but I'm ok with being surrounded by trees and small town-ness.

    A handy and great place to type.
    I miss sitting on rooftops. I never typed from a roof, but I did quite a bit of thinking, reading and writing there.
