#Notebooks - Covetable Stationery inspired by my #BookOfTheMonth

My Book Of The Month for May 2019 is the insightful writers' guide Writer Get Noticed! by Colleen M Story.
I don't often read self help guides, but the subject of this one appealed to me and I did find it useful to me as a blogger. Not as useful as I am sure it would be to authors, but still very much worth the read. Alongside her guidance and real-life examples, Colleen includes a number of thoughtful exercises which help identify writers' individual motivations and potential future avenues. For these you will need a notebook so not only is Writer Get Noticed! a useful resource, it is also an Excuse To Buy Stationery. Perfect!

  1. Any excuse to buy new stationeries is a win in my view!

    1. Me too! Getting new notepads and pens was my favourite bit about a new school term!

  2. For me it is the same as for you as I normally neither read self help guides. But this book for writes sounds really interesting - and helpful. Thanks for sharing, dear Stephanie!

  3. I love a pretty notebook. I have several that I'm still trying to figure out what to do with.

    1. Ah yes, I have a few that I can't bear to actually write in :-/

  4. interesting....

  5. Any book about writing that not only offers great advice but also encourages the purchase of stationery...well, that book is worth buying!

  6. I don't use much now but I used to have tons of penpals around the world and we loved using snail mail and interesting notepaper to write on. I have a few Game of Thrones book journals though.

    1. I used to love writing to penpals too, and the thrill of receiving actual letters from the other side of the world :-)
      We don't stay in one place long enough anymore. I wonder if kids still have penpals?

  7. ooooh so many pretties! I love the Yes You Can and the Swan ones. I love journals TBH! ❤️

    1. Me too!
      Buying stationery is almost as good as buying books :-)

  8. Dear! Great post about quirky notebooks. Thanks for sharing your information. I really appreciate your efforts.
