MY WRITING TOOLS
Every writer has their own sacred tools. Tools to create, to bring those words rolling around in our heads together, and to bring a story to life. I have seen a few other bloggers do a post similar to this, and I have loved each one. Here are my writing tools!
The Lucky Writing Sweater- I can’t decide if it screams hipster or just plain ugly! Ha-ha!
Either way, this sweater has magical powers. I am not sure why, but it seems like when I am wearing this sweater the words flow and I can write and write and write. Also I finished my first manuscript wearing this sweater!
The Laptop- This is my enormous (annoyingly enormous) laptop that has been with me through thick and thin. That keyboard has written hundreds of thousands of words. Recently, my poor lap top it has been debating retirement (an early retirement). I’m afraid if I don’t retire it soon it will throw in the towel. RIP laptop. Without you, I could never have gone as far I have.
The Cup of Coffee (or Tea in this picture)
This is my official writing cup. When I bought it, it was a real battle. The Make It Happen motivational mug or Wonder Woman mug? I’m not sure why I decided on just one. Why couldn’t I get both of them? (* sigh…life’s regrets) I even went back to the store the next day and the Wonder Woman mug was gone. Tear, Tear. Anyway I do love the “MAKE IT HAPPEN” motivational reminder as I drink and write.
The Writing Journal
Inspiration doesn’t always come when you are on your laptop. Inspiration hits me throughout the day, anytime-anyplace.I like to keep a journal handy to write down any thoughts, ideas or inspiration. The random papers underneath, and inside are when I didn’t have the journal on me and just wrote thoughts down on whatever I could get my hands on.
All About that Grammar- There are about a million rules in the English Language…and I have a lot of questions! Keeping a Grammar and Usage books around has been handy. Also, to be a good writer, you must be a good reader. I always keep a good book nearby for needed inspiration.
And this is just a cute picture I had to add! This is Branson, my sister’s dog I love to pieces!
What are your writing tools? I would love to hear about them!
