Writers Need A Lifetime Supply Of…

Ideas

You can’t just write the same story all your life, can you? Guy falls in love with girl. Guy falls in love with girl. Guy falls in love with girl. Okay, maybe you can.

Pens

What did writers do before pens were invented? Don’t ask me. I wouldn’t know. I’m the user of many pens and the owner of even more. 

Friends

I have very few living, breathing human beings as friends. But you can never have too many fictional friends. 

Books

Small books, big books. All kinds of books.

Notebooks

Because as much fun as it is to read stories, it’s fun to create them as well.
