Friday Fives- Writing Necessities


Paper Hangover asks the question What are the FIVE things you need to write with, other than pen, paper, and a computer.

1. The Loft- I'm so lucky to live in Minneapolis where the Loft has been a part of my writing journey.  I've taken a number of classes there, attended conferences and met my writing groups through this place.  The atmosphere is just great for writing.

2. Tea- I don't drink coffee so tea is my caffeinated beverage of choice.

3. Note cards- I really like to use these to write notes about my WIP as inspiration strikes.

4. iPod Touch- I like being able to tweet/facebook without leaving my wip.  I've also used to notepad to write down ideas when inspiration strikes.

5. Kindle- I use my Kindle to read drafts of my wip.  I can read my wip anywhere without needing to lug around a stack of paper or my laptop.

I have most of the same writing necessities (both coffee AND tea though - hot beverage junkie right here). Good choices :)

Reading drafts on your Kindle is such an awesome idea! Another reason I need one of those. :)

Hmm, that Loft place sounds cool! Although I can't accept the fact that you don't drink coffee. My brain won't allow it. Great list! :D

I'd love a Kindle, for that very reason. **Sigh** Maybe next year.

I totally tweet while I'm writing! Haven't figured out whether that's healthy or not, but I can't seem to stop. :/

I never thought about reading drafts on a Kindle! I was already thinking about putting a Kindle on my Christmas list and this confirms it. I've wanted one for ages anyway.

Have a great weekend!

This is a great list. One of the main reasons why I want a Nook or a Kindle is to read my drafts.

The Loft sounds cool.
I need my iPad and a box of Hot Tamales!

Christina Lee said...

Good ones! I still haven't used my Kindle to read drafts--need to try that one!

Ooo. Great tools to have tucked in your "go" bag. I haven't been to the Loft, yet. It's on my list!

Alison Miller said...

Hmmm. This makes me want to get a Kindle now. I could use that option.

I've been thinking about a Kindle just so I can use it for reading novel drafts (though I'm sure I'd read some books on it too).
