(No, I don’t mean that kind of toy. Although we need those, too… but all right, that’s another blog.)
The point is, you are going to be working SO HARD for the next two months (and I hate to be the one to break it to you, but for the rest of your lives, as well…) So I really encourage you to splurge on a nice big beautiful notebook to brainstorm and outline ad write your novel in (outside the laptop, of course). We poor writers live so much in our heads it’s important to give ourselves toys and rewards to make the work feel less like work, and also to cut down on the drinking.
We start October Outline month tomorrow, so do it.
Go to an office or stationery store, or shop on line, and find yourself a wonderful notebook to work in, something worthy of this story you’re about to create.
And let us all know some of your favorite writing toys!
