I'm a writer (or I try to be—some days are more successful than others) and while I have... well, not embraced technology exactly, I have (mostly) accepted its existence and its continuing tendency to encroach farther and farther into my once paper and pen world.
But I will never (never!) give up my notebooks.
Currently, my favorite notebooks come from Staples. They're the 9.5 x 6 inch sugarcane-based Sustainable Earth notebooks, and I can't go into a Staples without leaving with at least one. They're hardy, so they hold up to being shoved in and out of my bags, but they're small enough to fit in my bags. And they have a handy storage pocket in which I tuck a copy of whatever random scene I'm trying to work out now.
Once, my lovely and talented goddaughter gave me a special notebook for Christmas. It looked like this:
But as I am far less artistically inclined than the kids in my life, I usually cover them with stickers so they end up looking something like this:
|My current notebook|
Inside they generally look like this:
|A list of edits needing to be made|
But my lovely and talented niece draws in each and every one (not yet the new one) so occasionally, you come across a page that looks like this:
Are you a notebook person, too? If so, do you have a preferred brand?
