All I Want for Christmas…
… is peace of mind and a bit of rest, if I am honest.
If that is an unlikely proposal, then here are some alternatives that this writer (and maybe other writers you know) would appreciate.
- Adopt a book at the British Library and help fund the conservation of rare and precious books.
- One year’s membership of the Poetry Society in the UK or its US twin
- Mslexia’s fabulous Writers’ Diary for 2013 – or even an annual subscription to Mslexia
- For writers who are also Formula One fans, this beautiful Ferrari pen in red – although, to be honest, for writing smoothness, I prefer the simple gel pens you can get 3 to a pack at supermarkets. (I personally have supported McLaren since I was knee-high, but their pens are just not as cool.)
Notebooks. One can never have enough of those. My current favourites are the incredibly smooth, practical, yet luxurious Rhodia orange-and-blacks.
And, since I don’t expect my family to come across this wish-list on my blog, I have to admit that I have gifted myself a couple of the above for Christmas already…
What have you got your writerly eye on this Christmas? Other than books, obviously, which make the best presents of all! Oh, and by the way, I have not been paid to advertise any of the above products or websites.
