  • QOTW: What do you write?

    I’m pretty sure everyone who reads this blog uses their stash of notebooks and pens for different reasons. What do you use yours for? School notes? Journaling? Scribbling notes about your day? Notes for an upcoming story or perhaps you even handwrite your stories in them? Maybe something else? Hit the comments and tell us what you like to write about most!

  • Bye Bye Moleskine!

    Ah the beloved and classic Moleskine, how I wanted to know thee. Before I bought my first one, I read numerous accounts of people feeling very strongly one way or another about their place in paperdom. The complaints ranged from the paper being the most horrible ever made, to the best ever made and everything in between. I tend to research my paper purchases heavily but when you see something as visual pleasing as the Moleskine and the seemingly 50/50 split on the quality, I simply have to try it myself.

  • Review: Molecover Moletape

    When Molecover put out the request for bloggers to review their Moletape, I jumped at the chance and I didn’t even own a Moleskine at the time. I think we all like getting free products, even if it carries the stipulation that we do some work for it. As soon as they confirmed they were sending me one, I ran out and bought a ruled Moleskine to test. Molecover created this tape to strengthen the binding of the Moleskine which they claim is the weakest point of the notebook.

  • On being a pen snob

    I spent the entire weekend watching Fringe so today’s post is A. late, and B. quite lame. Maybe if I didn’t put myself under pressure to post every single week day, I’d have better content. I’m going to admit to being a pen snob. No, I’m not one of those people with a whole collection of (insert high end brand name here) who act as if every other pen is below them, but I was close.

  • Pen Hack: G-2 meets Signo

    Normally I try to do a review of something on Fridays and I had intended to review the Piccadilly Primo journal, but I don’t feel my review is properly ready. I’ve been a bit under the weather lately and it has me moving a bit slower than normal. I will have that review ready for next Friday or perhaps even a bit earlier during the week. I’ve been a big fan of the Pilot G-2 for a while, as you saw earlier this week, I have 3 of the different editions.

  • QOTW: What’s your favorite writing instrument?

    If you’re reading this blog, you probably have a LOT of writing utensils. Some of us prefer pens, some prefer pencils, and we all have that one favorite instrument that we can’t help but keep near us at all times. So what’s yours? Maybe you don’t like to play favorites but I bet deep down in your brain, you have a favorite. But if you can’t pick one, at least tell us if it’s a fountain pen, a gel pen, or a pencil.

  • Failure IS an option!

    This week, I coined a new term: “Temporary Failure Environment”. This is an idea I came up with while trying to work through some creative issues. This process most likely isn’t anything new but I stumbled onto it by my own accord so I’ll act like it’s mine for the duration of this entry. I think it will prove to be quite helpful for people suffering from the same creative fright I’ve been paralyzed by.

  • The G2 family keeps growing

    This is probably old news for you Pilot G-2 fanatics, but there’s a G-2 “Limited” out there. When I saw one in person, I decided I had to have one for my very own. The popular G-2 pen is cheap and that’s the draw, it’s a fantastic writer, very low priced, and it’s comfortable. Pilot definitely hit a home run when they designed this pen. Then, as if they knew there might be a portion of the world who wanted something a little bit fancier, they released the G-2 Pro.

  • Review: Black n’ Red notebooks

    Update 2014-03-27: I’ve revisited this review after 5 years, see if I still love these notebooks by clicking this sentence If you’re like me, you love collecting paper. Notebooks, journals, reams of paper, these are things that a lot of us have squirreled away somewhere in our home. And in my case, most of them are blank but that’s a subject for another day. 🙂 Today I am reviewing the Black n' Red brand notebooks.
