I have a secret. I have a passion for something and I am slightly embarrassed by my yearnings! Just thinking about it sends tingles of electricity down my spine. So far I have been able to satisfy my cravings by just holding one of them, caressing it, smelling it's sweet bouquet discreetly in a remote corner of a shop. Hiding.
I could never buy one - far too expensive and decadant for the likes of a wannabe writer like me. I'm more of a Tesco value range girl. Buy one get one free special offer kind of girl. Nothing wrong with that, I like to save money where I can.
But I did promise myself that when I got a short story published I would allow myself to buy a little something that I desired, and I'm so excited! Having had confirmation from Australia and my bank that the payment is in my account I have thrown caution to the wind and purchased not one but two large MOLESKINE notebooks.
Wooh! I'm quite breathless and giddy with delight! I've been on the Moleskine website this evening, whilst watching The Chelsea Flower show (Alan Titchmarsh is another of my not so secret fantasy guilty pleasures, but we won't go into that! Laugh if you must!). I have ordered a large lined notebook and a large plain notebook. I shall be hounding my poor postman everyday until he hands me the glorious package!
So what's your guilty writing pleasure then? Come on! Confession is good for the soul! (I know Nicola has a fetish for notebooks!) So just for Nicola, there are some photos of my daughter's purple note book and her writing at the top of this post - enjoy!
Happy writing! Julie
