Are you a writer who loves your tools? Welcome!

I’ve written stories by hand since I was a little kid, and I’ve written three first drafts of novels by hand in the last six years. I’ve tried out a lot of office supplies.

In this newsletter, I talk about pens, ink, pencils, markers, notebooks, tape, and probably even paper clips at some point. What I like, what I don’t, and why. (Are you left-handed? Me, too.)

Want me to suggest a setup for you? Want to write a guest entry?
Let’s talk:, or DM gnomeloaf on Twitter.

This newsletter will always be free, and you can always delete it if life is moving too fast.

Got friends who also get way too excited about finding the right ink converter?
