Typewriter Causes Madness

I wrote my first short story on one of these - a Royal Portable - nearly 50 years ago. Pop gave me the typewriter for Christmas because he'd hope it would encourage me to take up a secretarial career. Nope. I wanted to use it to write (not a job where I could support myself - or at least that's what Pop said).
I submitted the story to Family Circle (that was back when it was still publishing fiction) and received my first rejection letter.

Madness is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. This is madness, but I can't stop....
