Daily Prompt: Paper

paper-and- pens

In spite of me owning a plethora of electronic devices (mobile phones, laptops, kindle) you never have to look far in my house to find old-fashioned paper, and multicoloured pens, and pencils, and of course a couple of highlighters.

I always have a varied selection of A4 loose-leaf pads, A4 and A5 wire-bound note pads, and A4 and A5 hard-bound notebooks, all lined with no margins, all used for different things. And there’s always a well-used scruffy-looking reporters notebook and at least one pen kicking around in my handbag, just incase.

I just really like to write stuff down longhand, ideas for poems and snippets of conversations and memories jogged – and not forgetting the joy of lists… oh how I love a good list! ๐Ÿ™‚

    ๐Ÿ™‚ We’d better check to see if we twins were simply separated at birth! I just went through some looseleaf *poems* in my desk drawer (and parted with them). Once upon a time, one of my biggest thrills (after a Dell Crossword & Puzzle Book) was affording a package of lined paper and a Bic fine line blue pen. Actually, it still is. What do you use highlighters on?

      Titles of things, important things of note, and particular items on lists… I worked for 10 years as a University administrator, so I guess old habits die hard… ๐Ÿ™‚

        Ohhhh, ok — ty for elaborating. I was curious — I’ve used highlighters a couple times, but it feels so illegal, lol.

          Well I just figure that if it’s my writing, I can highlight it if I want to! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love paper, too. I especially like Moleskine journals for writing.
    There are always note pads and scraps of paper about, just in case
    an idea strikes!

      I’m sure there are still a lot old-fashioned pen-and-paper-lovers about ๐Ÿ™‚

      Hmmm… I can think of several individuals who would be much better organised in life if they did write lists! ๐Ÿ™‚
