Writing supplies

Filed under: Uncategorized — coffeegirl88 @ 10:23 am

It is just me or do all writers drool over the office supply store?  Am I the only one who looks forward to the back-to-school season for all the new shiny pretty things that appear?   I don’t know what gets me worse, all the new pens in colors you don’t find during the rest of the year (orange ballpoint any one) or the prices.  I have enough filler paper to last me years that I bought for .50 a pack last year.  I buy pens by the pack for .50 as well.  It always seems like such a  bargain, then I get it home and realize I had the same thought last year. 

What surprises me this year, is that back-to-school season is here.  It’s July folks.  I started seeing the displays about two weeks after school let out.  I mean talk about cruel.  For as much as I love it, the kids must just groan.  They just get out of school, shake off all that, dig into summer and BAM school supplies start appearing.  Nothing like never letting a person forget. 

Of course, even when I was in school I liked shopping for the stuff.  I hated school, but loved the papers and pens.  I used to have a set of LePens.  Anyone remember those very thin fiber point pens.  I have lavender and light green and pink.  I remember color coding stories even back then.

Yup, I’m a writer and a dork.



  1. Hey its mheartsm. As a writer I totally agree. In my blog I have something devoted to my writing career. Although paper isnt my thing I am a TOTAL freak for microsoft word. When my fingers itch for a new chapter in my novel I’m afraid I’m going to break the keyboard. My fingers itch to get all of the words out. Thanks for your post. And no our not the only dork. 🙂

  2. Didn’t think I was the only dork out there.

    Quick question, since my mind is Swiss cheese most days, do I know you?
