Sacred Pens and Holy Notebooks

Speaking of “sacred pens” and “holy notebooks” . . .

If you’re going to write a lot, you need a good pen. Some of my journal entries from 2017 have faded badly, perhaps because they were exposed, if only briefly, to direct sunlight. Not that I wanted to keep those particular pages, but you never know when you will want something to last. The fading proved that I needed a better pen with better ink.

And sometimes it’s nice to have a special notebook to write in. While I was shopping for Christmas presents for the children last year, I found a great journal. It features a picture of a tree with golden cogs inside. It was so metaphorically perfect for my novel that I had to buy it. I didn’t even look at the price.

Somehow my husband knew I needed a new pen, and he magically picked one to go with my new notebook, and here is the result.

New pen on new notebook (pen by Cross, notebook by Peter Pauper Press). Both the ink and the paper are archival quality.

Serendipity!
