I am extremely in love with office supplies! The school/office supply aisle at the story is my cryptonite. I go weak at the knees and probably start drooling every time we are in that aisle. My husband has to pull me away, telling me I have enough pens, pencils, paperclips, etc, etc, etc.
I LOVE OFFICE SUPPLIES!! (And it because even more extreme and dangerous when I walk into Costco! They sell office supplies in HUGE packs!)
Despite my husbands objections and careful reasoning - I know he is wrong!
As an author I can never have too many pens or pencils. Do you realize how easily those things wander off? I have to have several in every room of the house, the car, my purse, my other purse just in case, my laptop case, etc, etc. Pens like to run away! So you have to keep a huge supply of them on hand.
Also, stick-it notes (yes, I have already been told it should be sticky notes or post-it notes. But since nobody seems to agree on what they are called, I have merged the two into one! Stick-it notes they are!) I am endlessly jotting down ideas on these and sticking them to my walls, computer, and the cover of my notebooks. Bringing me to notebooks. They are priceless, they are always needed, and yes they are different from the stick-it notes. they are for longer, complete thoughts :)
Markers are a must - maybe I just like the colors ... maybe that's why all my pens are different colors ... or maybe I just like the markers ... I like drawing on my whiteboard ....
Do you see where I am going with this?
I would like to know if any authors out there every said, "you know, maybe I have too many office supplies ..." because I certainly have never said this, and I'm pretty sure few of you have ever said it either.
I love my office supplies! I love them! And I can never have enough.
My husband has gotten smart though .... instead of explaining to me why I can't buy more, he carefully keeps us clear of that aisle in every story we enter
But two can play at this game! I'm going to get him to buy me those colorful stick-its I saw at Costco ....
