I just want to start by saying that this post is in no way an attempt to coax anyone into buying me any of these things. I’m a writer so I’m simply giving you ideas for other writers. *insert smiling with angel halo emoji*
As with all creatively led folks, writers can be a bit complex and difficult to understand. OK maybe that’s just me as a person. Anyway the point is that it may not be easy to think of gifts to get because creatives are seemingly all over the place at times. Don’t worry though, I got you! Here are some things that any writer would appreciate receiving.
It’s probably no surprise to you that I write in a journal. I don’t use it everyday although it’s great practice to do so. It seems that a lot of people use journals when they’re young, especially in the preteen years; but then stray as they get older. It makes sense because as adolescents we have so much going on (physical/emotional development, confidence issues, being separated from childhood friends) and may not always have a person to talk to about those changes. At that point in our lives a journal feels “safe.” But then we get older, busy. Journaling isn’t just for the youngin’s. Here are a few reasons to get back into using a journal today.

You may already know that I have a creative writing and editing firm (McGee Manuscript Group).
We were cleaning off a bookshelf and came across some really cute journals. So we decided to give them away! Even if you’re not a professional author or writer, journals always come in handy. They can be used for diaries, meeting notes or to write out recipes. Some of these have bookmarks so you can always pick up where you left off. One of them says “It is better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.” Um, hello – I totally agree!
