On Notebooks


I suppose there's no getting around the fact that I'm a notebook person
-- specifically a lined, college-ruled, unnumbered pages kind of notebook person. And with one notable exception, I'm probably not too different from the other notebook snobs that you've known and mocked over the years. My trouble is that I can never bring myself to write in my notebooks..... Because as long as we focus on the romance of the supplies, we don’t have to write a damn thing until we find the perfect notebook. This strategy is effective; it shields you from the terrifying act of actually writing. And as a compulsive email checker, pipe-dreamer, and firm believer that you can’t start a project until you’ve cleared out your Google Reader and taken three showers, I can attest to its wily adaptability. -- The Weight of a Good Notebook « The Bygone Bureau
