Stationery Obsession

I am coming clean today. Confessing my sins. I am a stationery addict.

I love notebooks, pencils, pens, highlighter pens and can’t go without a fix for very long.

Every novel has a new notebook, it’s pages still virgin and unsullied until I put the first scratch of pen on them. The smell of new pages thrills me, the covers have to be just right and even better if they have that elastic band to keep the page.

My daughter had a pencil case obsession. At one time she had over a hundred. I think I might have passed that with the notebooks.

New notebooks fuel my creativity rush. Sometimes even the cover will suggest itself to a story.

So, yes…….How many of you feel the same way about notebooks. Please let there be some more of you, I don’t want to stand alone on this huge mountain.

  1. I hear you! Notebooks are almost a fetish of mine – there can never be too many! Pens and pencil cases I adore also, so I am rather jealous of your daughter’s fine collection πŸ™‚ I could spend all day in a stationers. I used to love any excuse to go to the stationary cupboard at school and this continued into my adult life with those at work. The absolute best was when I worked at the College – now, that really was a magnificent stationary cupboard! The smells, the feel of paper and wood – sheer heaven πŸ™‚

  2. Yes, notebooks definitely deserve their own bookshelf. I just wish mine weren’t so random. Scraps of ideas, short stories, characters, scenes etc in all of them. Still, it’s fun to pick through them occasionally.

  3. Hi Adele. You aren’t alone! I’m addicted to interesting looking and good functioning journals, spirals and notebooks. I use a different one every time I start a new work. And like you, I favour the ones in particular that have an elastic attached to bookmark pages. πŸ™‚ ❀
