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) http://www.jetpens.com/product_info.php/products_id/2594
Colored AND White index cards (because some things you just can’t classify)
Manila folders (gotta stay organized)
Index card case
“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?
