Attention deficit

I apply to The University of Rabelais and am admitted. 

First assignment: write a novel with a poet as the protagonist.

I sit at my desk with pad and paper and ballpoint pen, an manual Olympia typewriter with a red ribbon, an IBM Selectric, a MacBook Pro with Microsoft Word, and my IPhone. 

Nothing much happens: I can’t get past the title: “Autobiography of Poetry: the Attention Deficit Edition.”
