What I’m currently using: the Paperblanks Blue Filigree journal, the Seven Seas Writer, and the Franklin Christoph Notebook. Just last night I finished my Winnable Executive Journal, and I’ve been thinking about doing some sort of journal flip blog post.

It’s time to put the Al-Star away. On to the pen for February: the Nemosine Singularity in Blue Marble.


So I will bring this pen with me everywhere for the next month and use it as much as I can. No problem; love this pen. I will pick the new pen on Feb 24.

On Sunday I wrote about my lovely Parker Premier. So pretty. And this week I made a purchase from Nanami Paper so blog post will follow once it arrives.

Giveaways: Check out my post NaJoWriMo and a Giveaway and enter to win my Monteverde Poquito! Giveaway closes on January 30.

Some points covered this week in my journals:

  • I haven’t given up on NaJoWriMo but I am really far behind. We’ll see what the weekend brings.
  • We got walls at work last weekend! I moved floors in December and the cubicles we moved to had low walls between them. It was nice in that our workspaces felt quite open and expansive, but not so very private and with not a lot of storage. So now it’s been remedied and we have the same high-walled cubicles as everyone else on our floor. It’s great to be back to normal but it feels a bit caged in. It’s funny how quickly you can get used to something.
  • We got some sad news at work; a coworkers’ husband is very ill and she is taking an indefinite leave to care for him. One always feels so useless in these situations. We are praying for him and the whole family.

Until next post, happy writing!
