When I do my 5-Day Writing Challenge, one of the FIRST things we cover are supplies. Especially your pen and notebook.
Because as authors (and entrepreneurs) we have a DEEP love of office supplies.
But BUYING them and USING them are two different things!
I’ve fielded DOZENS of queries over the years about what is the best notebook to use to write your book – either the whole thing or notes.
Guys! This can SERIOUSLY trip you up…
Some people adore the expensive, leather-bound journals. The ones you need to mortgage your house to afford.
Some people grab the notes app on their phone; no tree-killing writers here!
Some people start and stop DOZENS of notebooks – and end up scattered.
Some people need lines. Or dots. Or blank pages. Or a steno-pad, with the spiral at the TOP. (Looking at you, lefties!)
Deep breath, my friend.
Because there IS a best notebook out there:
The notebook you will USE.
Let me say that again:
The BEST notebook for writing your book is the one that you will actually pick up, open, and write in.
