on Writing Forward:
I’ve been collecting writing notebooks and journals since I was a teenager. Most writers I know tend to accumulate a lot of stationery and office supplies: notebooks, pens, paper clips, and other odds and ends that we can use to manage and organize our writing projects.
Over time, all these items pile up.
I now have a sizable collection of writing notebooks and journals. Some are completely filled up. Others are still blank. A few are only partially used.
