Whimsical Wednesdays...Notebooks

Well it's Whimsical Wendesday again, but first I must apologize for not posting in forever. :( Let's just say work has kept me busy to say the least. I've worked 25 hours in three days...now to some that may not be a lot, but when you're working out in the sun all day that's tough on your body. I've been insanely tired as of late.

Anyway for today's Whimsical Wednesday post I'm going to talk about writing (...big surprise there, right?) in the form of notebooks that is.

To put it simply: I love notebooks...am obsessed with them actually. I ask for one every single holiday and I get one every time I can justify buying one. I like assigning different notebooks for different things. One notebook for writer's journal, one for cool names I hear or think of, one for plotting, one for actual writing.

I went to the store and saw twenty notebooks that I wanted. That’s why I never go down the school supplies aisle unless I absolutely have to. It’s a hazard. Some people can’t see shoes without having to buy them, for me it’s notebooks. If I see a notebook, I have to get it.

I know that computers help the writing process immensely and I love them. I use computers once I have a story idea that’s kicked off and I’ve reached a few thousand words, but for the first few thousand words I love using my notebook. I love the way I feel when my hand flies across the paper. There’s just something more intimate about using a notebook than a computer.

Notebooks are my guilty pleasure in life. I absolutely love them. If you're having writer's block, I always find it helpful to leave the computer and start writing on a notebook. But then again, maybe that's just me.
