It's that time of year. Time to buy school supplies! All authors love this season. The stores brimming with ballpoint pens and neat office stuff. I think school supplies to a writer are like the right wrinkle cream to a middle-aged chick. You always think the right equipment will make all the difference in the end-result.
It's a superstition I can't quite get over. I have my favorite pens (Pentel Gel in blue -- medium) and I get so excited to take my kids every year.
However, they don't have the same excitement. They don't even care if they go, "Just pick me up this..."
My kids are math geniuses. I don't have an English Lit kid in the bunch. That seems wrong somehow, and makes Back to School shopping very lonely.
As a writer or a book lover, do you have a thing for office supplies? What are your favorites?
