This week’s addict emailed me to share her collection– or at least part of it:
I’ve been reading your blog for about a year now, and my favourite part of it is the Addict of the Week. I always wonder if my collection is actually a bit absurd compared to some of the others, but I think it’s fairly impressive. Sorry about the bad photo quality!These are all my unused notebooks. I haven’t counted them all but I’d estimate there’s about 150-200 there. I go for bright designs, pretty pages, textured covers and of course, paper quality. My collection includes six TeNeues CoolNotes, two Moleskine sketchbooks, an A5 Miro and dozens of random ones picked up because I couldn’t resist them. I seem to leave the house with no notebooks and come back with at least three. I use them for journals, but also to write character diaries, short stories, novel outlines and each year I use several in my NaNoWriMo attempt.I love the feel of pen on paper. I have been keeping a journal ever since I was a kid. And every time I feel like slacking in my writing, all those notebooks just look at me reproachfully until I get back into it. I don’t know a better feeling than finishing a notebook and adding it to the other -much smaller- stack.
