There is something about paper….

7 Oct

There is just something about writing with pen and paper that I love. It inspires my creativity more than typing. But I am very particular about notebooks and pens. I used to hate notebooks that were like legal pads- flip tops- until I found these notebooks. They’re amazing- the front is also cardboard so they’re stiff and they’re just perfect, I can’t explain it. And I also suggest these pens – which have a micro tip, .5mm and they don’t smear and are perfect. Just had to put that out there… So anywho…

I finished one of my Christmas knitting projects today, so I started to work on planning my NaNoWriMo novel. I’m really excited about the project, and I think it’s going to be pretty awesome. The basic premise is a guide on How To be A Serial Killer- with each chapter as a letter of the alphabet. Example: Chapter 1 would be “Always Kill Your Victims”. The narrative then goes on to introduce Alfie- the serial killer- and the woman he’s keeping hostage in his basement. Essentially it goes on to tell all about how the serial killer in question is breaking all of the rules. It’s supposed to be hilarious and ridiculaous- all for fun. Because I want to do something very light hearted for the project since I’ll have so many other things going on.

I’ve also been working on my poetry! I’m working on a collection of poems inspired by my family, and finished one about my great grandparents. I have this wonderful memory of my great grandfather painting my great grandmother’s toes, and thinking- you know what, this is what love looks like! So I wrote a cute little poem about it- and the few people I trust to give a critical eye to my poetry really liked it. I think it’s going to be a fun project- and my family is very colorful so I will have a lot of inspiration.

My next knitting project is Bender! So let’s see how things go.
