In•eff•a•ble /ɪnˈɛfəbəl/ — too extreme to be expressed in words; that which must not be uttered
"My name is Jonathon and I have been actively writing for the last 15 years. I use a Smith-Corona Electra 120 typewriter to produce my poems. Call me old-fashioned but the typewriter forces me to draft each poem from the beginning over and over again until I am done with it. Sometimes two drafts are enough, other times seven or more need to be punched-out, scribbled upon, and punched out. It's often a long process, but in the end I don't end up in a position where I find myself bogged down with minor tweaking and never really feeling done with it the way it feels when I use digital means. Writing poetry is a chore, and when each piece is finished, I feel a brief sense of accomplishment. It's that satisfaction which keeps me coming back to flick the switch, listening to the whirr, hum, clack, and ding."
