Shiny New Notebook

Last week my coworkers and I went to a paper show in Grand Rapids. I have received TONS of HILARIOUS comments about how exciting a paper show sounds, but trust me, it’s exciting. Yes, the theme is paper, but it’s how the paper is presented that draws the crowd. Each company tries to outdo the next with unique designs, interesting die-cuts, and gimmicks that people will want to display in their cube for the next year.

Case in point, my new notebook!

It says Via over and over and is completely blank inside. PERFECT for writing, no? Since I’m starting my next novel in a couple weeks I was thinking I needed to get a new notebook, and this is exactly what I was hoping for. I’m writing YA so the colors seem very appropriate (although, really, I’d use it for anything). My MC has a Hispanic nickname (although she’s not Hispanic) and VIA is a spanish word.

Voila! (That’s French.)

    • I resisted taking any of the pens because I can only write with gel pens. I partially blame my left-handedness, so maybe it’s something to do with the way I hold a pen. I don’t know.

      What was the question?

    Like I told you before, been there done that, fell asleep, woke up, swore I would never do it again.

    Paper shows do not do it for me, I find them very tiring, and to me it looks like all the same stuff, I cannot tell the difference.
