If you've been reading this blog, you may remember that I'm addicted to the superfine products made by Levenger, a company that bills itself as a purveyor of "tools for serious readers." They also make a full line of sensuous, high-quality tools for serious writers, and I've come to depend on them as much as I rely on my computers.
My first love is their heavy weight 3X5 cards, which I carry in a pocket-sized leather notebook that they call a Hipster. The cards are hole-punched using their cool Circa system, which allows you rearrange your pages without opening any rings. Nice.
I love my 3X5 cards to an embarrassing degree. They're the perfect size for a short list or for capturing a single idea. I carry them in my Hipster and transfer them to my bleachers or my folio. You can sort them by priority or date and really get a visual picture of your to do list.
But, like all fickle lovers, I'm already planning my next conquest. I've been making serious eyes at their new "Circa Book Author Kit."
My first novel is coming out next year August and the publisher has already expressed interest in a sequel. I'm thinking this kit might be just the thing for mapping out my scenes. There's enough room for a good description of the action, and since they're easily rearranged, I can move them around at will.
And have I mentioned how smooth and inviting Levenger's paper is to write on. It's like gliding your pen against ice.
But less messy. And warmer.
