This year, I have a few decorative accessories, and a few that are totally crucial to a writer in his or her natural habitat.
On the necessary side, take your novel with you wherever you go with this adorable owl-shaped USB drive. There is nothing quite like the exquisite agony of losing the precious words you worked so hard on, so please: back it up! It should be easy with such a cute storage device!
Yes, last post I did feature another piece by this fabulous Etsyian. And no, I still don't own one of these rings. But I'm lusting like nothing else, especially after the semicolon one shown above. The semicolon is my very favorite punctuation mark! Clearly, this is a match made in heaven.
As winter is coming upon us, fingerless gloves become invaluable for those of us who want to type/write without our hands freezing. Plus, gloves that are as cute as these are enough of a fashion statement that you can totally rock them with your late autumn/early winter outfits.
If you're a funky type who wants to wear their writerly identity like a badge of pride, this scarf is a big step in the right direction. It's a scarf that's a pencil! What more is there to say?
And while you're slaving away over your magnum opus, why not wear a little bit of a good luck talisman: a writer you admire, resting right over your heart. Sometimes when I'm working on a project, I feel a bit like the above famed recluse, JD Salinger.
Are any of you doing Nanowrimo this year? It's not too late to sign up -- if you power through, you can definitely make up the words! What are your "must have" when you write? I almost always write on my laptop, but I love having a Moleskin notebook around in case I need to jot something down. It makes me feel very official!
