Paper Porn: The Not So Silent Addiction

I have a confession to make: I’m a paper addict. Let that settle in. I know it’s shocking. Okay, it’s not shocking given my job. A writer who likes paper? That’s like a writer who likes cats. Maybe I’m just a walking cliche. But it is what it is and I think we don’t talk about it enough.

First, let’s talk about notebooks. I don’t know if I collect them but I do have a lot. Here is a small selection:

My notebook for house hunting. Yeah, cause I need a little notebook for that.

Right now I’m into purple legal pads for plotting.

You can see I have a few.

And then there’s this. My drawer of additional notebooks.

I swear I must have fifty started notebooks to help me organize and I doubt I’m even a tiny bit more organized just because I write stuff down. I also have a to do list mousepad.

More paper. It is really helpful, especially in combination with my actual planner. I’m the last person on earth to use a paper planner.

And then there’s the post-it notes. You see where I’m going with this. I have plain ones for editing. I print out my books and when I want to add large sections of content I do it via post its stuck to the book itself. But beyond those editing post-its, I also have a plethora of “cute” ones for…I don’t know what. Seriously, I pile them in a drawer and get excited when I manage to find a use for them.

Paper. It’s like my porn. How about you? Are you a paper addict?
