Five Writerly Things To Buy When You’re a Writer

Just as all writers have different writers styles, they too have a different writing process.

I, prefer to write at a computer. But I didn’t always use one to write.

I often used notebooks.

In fact, there was a time when I carried a notebook everywhere I went. Just in case I wanted or needed to jot down an idea.

Now, my phone takes the place of a notebook.

But that hasn’t prevented me from collecting notebooks.

So, without further ado… here’s 5 writerly things to buy when you’re a writer!

  1. Notebooks – I love Typo ones.
  2. Pens – If I could, I buy up all the purple pens I could find. Alas, I can’t so I console myself with black Papermate Profile ones.
  3. Book Covers – Because novels need covers. I try not to collect them unless I have a story in mind, but there’s never a time when cover art isn’t pretty to look at.
  4. Fingerless Gloves – I’ve been drooling over the ones at Storiarts for a while now)
  5. Coffee (& Chai Tea) – Because I can’t live without coffee… and Chai Tea in winter

My TBR Pile

AFCCB6A9-FA49-4027-97DB-4BFF2F6E544FIf you, like me are an avid reader you’ve probably got a to be read pile that keeps on getting bigger. If you don’t have a to be read pile, I’d love to know your secret to being a more productive reader. I struggle to find enough time to read to get through my pile.

Currently, on my to be read pile I have the following:

(in no particular order)

A Game of Thrones (plus the next two books) by George R R Martin

The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins

The Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Throne Of Glass by Sarah J Maas

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Dreamer’s Pool by Juliet Marillier

I have absolutely no excuse as to why they’re still sitting on my bookshelves untouched. It’s probably got something to do with the fact that I do get caught up reading ebooks more than I do paperbacks.

And while I schedule time to write I don’t schedule enough time to read. Sometimes sleep just has to take priority.

I believe the last paperback book I picked up was Rebecca.

But my currently reading pile? Why, that’s a list for another time.

Well, if you enjoyed this blog, drop me a comment with one book on your shelf you haven’t gotten around to reading. I’m always on the lookout for new books to read, even if I haven’t finished reading all the ones I currently own.
