Girls Write Out
Wednesday, August 08, 2012
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?

to me new school supplies,was right up there, with the Sears Christmas book. :)

I heard that there is a reading light out that is flat and lays on the page of a book. I would like that!

I love to stand in a office supply store and inhale. My favorite ink pens are Atlantis blue, medium. I also love scissors at every desk, table, etc. I need ink pens and letter openers all around the house. And the letter opener must be a specific on with double serrated edges and a good, solid black handle.

Gel pens, mechanical pencils, 3-ring binders, and all different kinds of paper!

Maybe I went back to school just so I'd have an excuse to buy school supplies. ;-)

Love two kinds of pens, both Uniball brand.

Signo 1.0 207 Gels in black and
Uni 1.0 Jetstream ballpoints in black.

Also, colored paperclips, notebooks and journal books, portfolio folders. Yes!

Oooh you're all getting me all excited! So fun to think about it, and have the hope that my passion will pass on to my kids (not so far, sadly!) Ah, the Sears Christmas catalog, now there is a memory.

I love the marbled composition notebooks that you don't tear the pages out of. That way, if I have a line of thought, that I may abandon, I can always go back to it later-just in case I change me mind! I will not have thrown it away, and it won't be lost, because I am famous for losing things!

Oh I love that idea. Those little books get so cheap as a loss leader at the school sales. I love them! I wish I used them, but alas, I buy mine from PaperChase, which are naturally more expensive.
