A few weeks before I had dashed off a passionate letter about how inspiring I found the July issue of the magazine and duly emailed it to the Letters Editor. Then I sat back to imagine what I would do if I were to win one of those lovely notebook prizes.
The words ‘Oh to own a moleskin notebook’ filled my thoughts like a line from a Wordsworth poem and it set me off on a journey of wild imaginings so I quickly wrote it all down. Then, just for fun, I decided to send it off to them as well.
That second letter was staring up at me from the printed page, grinning proudly, which meant I’d won a coveted ‘Moleskine’ notebook. There was even an Editor’s comment.
My notebook has since arrived and as you can see I’m thrilled. It’s just perfect!
It’s rather ironic really considering my August blog post about notebooks
Now I shall have to practice neat, tiny handwriting and in code!
Thank you, Writer’s Forum.
Are you reverential and neat in your Moleskine notebooks
or do they contain all your scruffy scribblings?
