When it comes to writing, there are many required tools, such as paper and pen, but there are also many additional tools, which may not be required but that add a lot to the creative process - at least mine. Currently, I'm working on edits to my Young Adult novel Tales of a Redheaded Sea-Witch. My required editing tool is a red, purple, or pink pen. My favourite is purple. Some preferred editing tools are sticky notes, paper clips, highlighters, and a trash bin. That last is actually a lie. I'm a hoarder of manuscripts. I keep each and every copy of every novel and novel version that I write. Seriously. I'm running out of room. And if I ever get the kind of time to be the writer I want to be, I'm going to have to buy an entire house just to have a place to put the masses of paper. And no, I cannot do all my editing electronically, just like I can't read everything electronically. I love paper. I surround myself with paper. I found these sticky notes at Chapters, and was thrilled to see two of my favourite things come together: paper and paris. These sticky notes are heaven, they actually make me look forward to the most-dreaded task of editing. What kind of writing tools do you use?
