Typewriter? This was the 90s, right? Printers weren't widespread yet?
Well, in the early 90s, PCs weren't even that widespread, yet. They were certainly available, but there wasn't one in every home. They were still mostly a novelty back then. Either for young gamers, or higher-end business professionals. You have to remember, widespread internet access didn't even START to gear up until the mid-to-late 90s and only really took off in the 00s.
Plus, some people just prefer the "feel" of a typewriter. It makes them feel like a "real" writer. There's a certain image people had of writers, and that image included typing away on a old typewriter, for a long time. The convenience of computers and the importance of always staying connected to your job has pretty much done away with that. But, back in 91-92, you could get away with just using a old typewriter and just mailing or bringing in your manuscripts.
