Now I love notepads, there is nothing better then opening a new notepad and writing in it. I must have at least 50 unused notepads and every time I’m at St Pancreas station in London I just have to pop into Paperchase and buy another one (don’t tell the Fiancé)!
My fiancé has recognised this addiction and often finds my new purchases hidden around the house, in drawers and my many bags, much the same as an alcoholic might hide bottles of gin.
When I started blogging I also started a new notebook, a nice, black Moleskin journal and I called it ‘My Little Book of Big Ideas’, over the past 3 weeks I have jotted down all of my ideas for my short story competition entries. I like this notebook because it’s just ideas, lots of mindmaps and character descriptions and along with this blog it’s got me writing on a daily basis.
Tomorrow I will complete my flash fiction entry and email it off before the 12pm deadline and I can only do this because I jotted down ideas in my notebook. It will be my first ever writing competition entry and it came to fruition from a bundle of notes and ideas in my notebook.
So see I may have an addiction but at least I’m using the notepads now, it just means I’ll have to keep on buying them so that I never run out.
