I’m pretty picky about my writing notebooks. In Writing Down the Bones, Natalie Goldberg advocates for cheap, drugstore notebooks to alleviate the pressure of having to write something grand, but I like having a little big of style in my notebooks. If you want to jazz up a plain notebook, A Beautiful Mess has a create tutorial for making a lace patterned notebook.
Wouldn’t that be a cool notebook to pull out of your bag at a coffee shop? I’m already feeling the writerly inspiration.
