Writer's Shopping List

A while back, I blogged about getting your idea. So now that you've got the idea, the next step is to daydream some more. Love it. I mean, what profession tells you to stare off into space and let your mind wander? Seriously.

Next is shopping!

Here's my writer's shopping list:

1. Very cool journal- big enough to jot all my notes and ideas into for this book. I like to splurge on this one. For my current WIP, I'm using a journal I bought at the gift shop of a French castle. It's got this cool medieval hard cover. Very inspirational.
2. Big piece of butcher paper- I get this from school
3. Colored sticky notes- blue, pink, yellow and purple (you can choose any ones you like)
4. Pens and pencils- they must be the fun kind. I got a heart and a star one.
5. Music- I go to I-tunes. Since my current WIP is set in Asia, I bought a bunch of Asian tunes for my i-pod.
6. Treats- dark chocolate (of course!) and coffee (must be caffeinated for me!)
7. Magazines- I get the old ones from the library that they are giving away

Next time, I'll go into detail on what I do with all this stuff.

So, how about you? What's on your writer's shopping list?

Can't go wrong with chocolate - not ever. :)

Whoa, you have some serious cool stuff on your list!
I'm mostly a computer gal, but I do love fun little things to inspire me, like a brand of beer or a picture reminding me of a scene from a book of mine.

PJ- Speaking of computer stuff, I also forgot to mention that if you don't have a wireless mouse, get one. I can't go back now that I have it. Spoiled!

Lilfix and Kim- chocolate buddies!

Great list! I really just work in spiral notebooks. Plus gotta get stamps and big envelopes. Other than trips to the library, that's about it!

I'm so curious about the butcher paper! Since I compose on the computer I don't need paper or pencils. And I don't listen to music when I write. I guess all I need is some peace and quiet!


journal - definitely i have a running list of blog topics
