Tools of The Trade

In case you were wondering, the tools of the trade for a writer, are not just paper and ink…it is so much more sometimes….and a few of these things.

Here’s the tools you will find sitting on my desk.


One for each main character

Two for side characters

One for outline and plot notes

One for sub plots and end plots

One for land descriptions and maps

Pencils – Mechanical Only!

Pens – Black ink only – I am very specific!



Writer’s Handbook – several good ones, find one with tips that work for your style of writing

Fidget spinner – Let’s be honest, they do help!

Glass of Wine – I prefer red

And a whole lot of imagination – There are no limits on our imaginations

So, there you have it my kind readers, the tools of the trade for a writer!
