I don’t know if all writers feel the same way I do about paper, but I just love the stuff. If I’m not careful, I pick up all kinds of stationery and writing utensils every chance I get.
One of the purchases is legitimate; I had a baby shower and needed thank-you notes. But, I didn’t need the cheap little notebooks for a dollar. I have a bunch of pens unopened in the drawer of my desk, too.
I never travel anywhere without paper and something to write with. Just in case I get a cool idea, I have to be able to write it down. And, in case I’m driving, I also have a digital recorder.
You’d think I could manage with just the recorder, but somehow I don’t seem to be able to let go of the paper.
I think I’ll need paper-lovers anonymous, but is it really so bad?
One thought on “The Love of Paper”
Paper is awesome. So are pens..ooooo and sharpies. I heart sharpies and whenever it seems there are new colors I buy some even though I haven’t used any for art in a long time.
I also like to buy those empty books, journals, because I plan to try writing some books by hand instead of using the computer. I have probably 10 or so but don’t write in them as of yet. Whenever I see a really cool one I want to buy it even though I don’t need any more.
