OAI Supplies (for fun:)

My writing supplies (part of them...)

I have index cards, markers, pencils and pens, paper clips, folders and books.

Of course, my lovely MacBook Pro.

And books. Did I mention my books?

I've got:
Plot Whisper
Book in a Month
Let's Make A Scene
One Way To Write A Novel
Riveting Your Reader With Deep Point Of View
Plot and Structure
The Fire in Fiction

And so much more...

Did you download the worksheets from Writers Digest?

So gather up your supplies, and lets get ready to write!
What have you got for the workshop? Anything ultra cool?

  1. Hi Talynn, I've got to catch up on posts! I was out with appointments today. I love school supplies. I'll have to dig through my supply drawer and pick out some pretties. :)

    1. To me, it's the first inspirational thing I do when writing a new story. Nothing gets me more ready to write than to see a cool notebook or set of awesome index cards. I always think, "Oh this-one-character" would love this notebook:)

  2. Love your supplies Talynn! I just have my computer and notebooks. Nothing fancy. I downloaded a couple.

    2. Colored metal. I love them. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and your words of encouragement. I already have people wanting to buy the book! I pray I sign with an agent in Feb, through your workshop.

  3. I didn't sign up for the workshop, but I found these awesome and tiny little notebooks at B&N to jot down notes. Otherwise, I usually use my laptop.

  5. Practically everything I have is digital, be it on my computer or backed up on the external hard drive -and- at least one USB stick. (Yes, I'm paranoid. Your point? ^_^)
    The rest, in my head. I mull and juggle and mutter at myself for weeks until I reach that particular scene. Once written, it starts all over again with another scene.

    1. When my macbook crashed a couple months ago(thank you coffee) if I didn't have the same back up, my writing life would have been over. I lost every thing:(

    2. Yeah. Backing up is something that cannot be stressed enough.
      I've been doing it since I once lost a ... let's face it, a -super- terrible story when a floppy disk got wet. Looking back, I don't consider it as much of a loss, but at the time I screamed and moped for days.
      Then there was the time, just a few years back now, I thought my external had died and I had a major hissy fit. Turned out it was just the cord, of which we had a replacement. (Whew!)

    3. Paaaleeeassse don't tell me external hard drives can mess up???
      *runs to check hard drive*

    4. I've had mine for five years now, no problems apart from an easily replaced cord. ^_^

    1. Aww! Thanks Tara:) I use logo Creator for Mac. I had Adobe Photo shop until my old macbook crashed (thanks, spilled coffee)

      And supplies are my weakness...

  10. Other than the computer, my only writing supplies are a 6x9 legal pad on a clipboard, where I keep all my notes, stapled together in bundles for each novel. I think I'm going to have to branch out eventually, though! That clipboard is starting to strain under the pressure.

    I was thinking of making character and location notebooks, where I have easy reference to character descriptions, traits, major plot points, and such. I should also make similar books for recurring locales and other physical things in the series. After a few books with the same characters, those details get easily muddled if I don't have a quick reference.
