I was house-sitting in a beautiful compound on Long Island Sound just up the coast from New Haven. House-sitting and working on a novel. The typewriter belonged to the house. Note beer can. Note backstage passes from the Clash and Squeeze. Note notebooks, folders, paper. Note photo of cast members from All My Children, a show I loved and found inspiring.
I was living in a haunted house in West Austin. I had a Smith-Corona typewriter--covered here, so maybe I wasn't writing so much. Beer bottles on my desk, along with spray cleaner. Paper towels, books (one I think might be a bible!), notebooks. The Johnny Walker Red was a gift from the late Mike Westlund, who at that time wasn't late.
