Let’s all face it at one point, we were students and we hated school supply shopping, because it meant the end of the summer and the start of another grueling year at school. But as a writer, I must profess that I have love school supply shopping. Why? The answer is simple, we can look at all the pens, pencils, notebooks, and all the other supplies that we need as writers.
Let’s all face it, this is the time of year, when the office supply stories make their money. School supply shopping is their Christmas season. Granted, I’ve bought a few notebooks this season and a backpack. But the key is that we as writers, we don’t have to go expensive, we can save money by looking for the good deals on pens, pencils, notebooks, paper, and anything else that we might need.
Just like the moms are looking for those deals, we as writers can also take advantage of those same great deals, and that is not so bad either. We can write and save money at the same time. While as helping others this season, by giving back and donating to local school supply drives and you don’t have to spend much either, but make it enough to where you feel that you are giving back to the community.
This is also like our Christmas when it comes to getting the supplies that we might want to have on hand for Nanowrimo, which is like three months away!!! Remember, we still have time before Nanowrimo, but we still cannot wait for it come about. But we can also have quite a bit of supplies, and who says that writers cannot have enough notebooks.
