Friday Five: Notebook Love

       




1)  I love spiral-bound notebooks.

2)  I love this notebook I'm using for revisions,
a notebook formerly used by Wildebeest:


3)  I love that I can keep my pen and pencil handy
for immediate use:


4)  I love that I have pages and pages in which to jot any old thought that pops into my
head and that I can rewrite sentences and figure out characterization issues and vomit
out any angst and uncertainty here, and generally just have lots of room to move:


5)  But maybe most of all, I love that the back cover has a drawing by Wildebeest:

I love that thought: valiant mouse to fend off inner critic!

It used to just make me smile but now when I look at the mouse, I can feel protected. Thank you.

I'm loving this idea of the mouse protecting me from that nasty inner voice. No one messes with my mouse!

If you need help keeping that nasty critic at bay, I'm sure Wildebeest could whip up another. Or, better yet, consider this little guy your protector, too. He looks tough enough to handle all problems.

I have lots of notebooks, but I've never really used them efficiently. Plus, none of mine have Invicible Mouse. Does Wildebeest still do cool drawings? T-boy used to draw, but not any more. He's too critical.

It's funny about notebooks and efficiency. It doesn't always work for me on each project and some parts of the process work better than others with a notebook. I'm using this for my revision with Claudia and it just feels so good to have all my thoughts and her insights in one place.

I guess you can say I'm experiencing notebook-crush right now.

Drawings do help notebooks but I think Wildebeest is like T-boy; he still draws but not nearly as much, I don't think. I try to grab what I come across to save for him because each drawing is like a little treasure.

I love notebooks too, but none of mine have cool illustrations like that!

Mine don't, either. Except for doodled flowers and stuff that has no gumption to it. I'm very happy to have this guy with me.

Isn't he a great mouse? Everyone should have such a good notebook friend.

I feel like a goof but I swear, I'm so happy with my notebook. It just feels so right for these revisions.

Is that Mickey? Because if so, that's the most awesome Mickey of ALL TIME.

Just checked with Wildebeest and it's not Mickey, but I think we can agree he's still a very groovy mouse.
