I’m a digital guy, but sometimes you can’t beat paper. If you’re going to use paper, then really nice paper is a must. Pens are nice too. This makes me a sucker for a store like Laywine’s. I could go crazy in a store like that. Don’t ask me why; it defies explanation. I could spend a lot of money on nice pens and quality paper. I made a special trip there today to pick up some Moleskine notebooks. I stumbled across these earlier this year and I’m hooked. I know that using the notebook of Van Gogh, Picasso, and Hemingway won’t help my writing, but it sure can’t hurt. And it sure makes the whole writing experience much more enjoyable.
