  1. Support Typewriter Stories!

    As it turns out, sending lots of mail requires lots of postage. And did you know that postage costs money? Me neither. Helloooo. I mowed through an entire booklet of forever stamps in two weeks.

    Holy cow. That’s like, twenty stories in two weeks. Rock! (Haven’t heard of the Typewriter Stories yet? Read them here!)

    But in order to keep up this totally H-core creation of tiny, funny stories, I need some help. Why? Because holy cow postage is expensive in large quantities. I mean, at 41 cents a pop, it doesn’t seem like much–but add it up over a couple dozen letters and it balloons like my thighs over the holidays.

    So, I am asking you, my wonderful people and readers and receivers of typewriter stories: Can you help me?

    I’ve determined a couple ways this can be done. First, and easiest, is just to donate using PayPal. Even a single dollar will buy me two-and-a-half stamps. Awesome, right? Cheap? Of course. Here’s the button:

     








    Whoa, so easy it just blows your mind, right?

    Optionally, you could buy me some stamps! Now, I’m reluctant to just put my address up on the internet (understandably, I think) so I’ll be getting a P.O. Box that can receive stuff in a week or two.

    In the meantime, here is a link to the list of forever stamps on USPS’s website. Just email my Typewriter Stories mailbox at request.a.story(at)gmail.com if you’re interested in contributing some stamps and I’ll be happy to give you the address.

    Thanks in advance, you loverly people!


  2. Typewriter Tumblr, and Queue Open Again

    January 6, 2013 by Kiersi

    So far the typewriter micro-stories have been a big hit. It’s time to keep the gravy train rolling along! There are two things you can do to help (ok, maybe three):

    1. Visit the new Typewriter Stories Tumblr page! (Then press “Follow” to get an update every time a new story comes out!)

    2. Tell your friends! Post it to Facebook or Twitter or whatever it is that cool people like you do when sharing something you like.

    3. Request one! Want a cute little story (starring you) typed up on the funkiest of funky typewriters, then wrapped in a cute envelope that says it was hand-crafted for you, and then mailed to your front door? Of course you do. WHO WOULDN’T. Amirite?

    Just click Request a Story to get your own.

    Maybe if this thing gets enough interest I will get some people to illustrate it–and maybe even make it into a book!

    Happy weekend!
