Bag of Tricks

They may not be magic, but every craftsman has his tools, right? Every writer has her resources.

With me every time I go to the coffee shop to write is my writing bag. It’s a brown plaid quilt shoulder bag that looks as old as it is. In it, I keep the following, without fail:

My favorite pens (duh)


Notebook paper

Bookmark tabs

Colored AND White index cards (because some things you just can’t classify)

Manila folders (gotta stay organized)

Index card case

Colored Pencils

“The Screenwriter’s Bible”—David Trottier

“Three Uses of a Knife”—David Mamet

At least 3 current projects

Any other references I may need to work on said projects

So, that’s my gear bag. What’s in yours?
