I bet you think I'm referring to my son, Bubba when I say "Mister Forgetful." Nope. I'm talking about my husband.
The other day, the man was looking for his keys. "Where did I put them?" he asked as we were trying to get out the door.
I shrugged. "Who knows? Why don't you consult your Tile app."
For those of you who don't know, Tile is a handy dandy device that helps you locate missing objects. You attach the tile chip to the object. Then if you lose the object, you activate the Tile app, and the Tile on the object rings, letting you know where it is. We all felt that Tile was a necessity for my husband, because he is very forgetful!
So, he consulted the Tile app. And the one on the key rang. Do you know where it was? In the garbage! Yep. My man had thrown it away. Thank God for the Tile, or those things would have been history!
Now, it's time for the IWSG post of the month.
The question is: What five writing items are on your desk at any given time?
Well, as I look at the stuff around me, here's what I find:
1. Computer. That's a necessity.
2. A pencil with an eraser.
3. Another eraser, because I erase a lot!
4. A notebook for writing. I write everything by hand before I type it in the computer.
5. A pen. I don't use it much, but it's there. Mostly for marking things in my calendar.
Other things: a computer mouse and pad, four candles (why not? I like them, they look pretty, and they smell good. And if the electricity goes out, I can just light them and continue writing.), and a few books on writing and marketing, which I refer to regularly.
What about you? If you're a writer what's on your desk?
