A few weeks back, I told you all about my writing zone—that magical place where writing happens. One of the main fixtures of my writing zone is a coffee mug full of pens, the purpose of which is self-explanatory.
Following that blog post, an anonymous somebody decided to “buy me a coffee” through the website Buy Me a Coffee. In fact, this unknown benefactor bought me three coffees, equaling a total donation of $9, to help me buy more pens to put in my coffee mug full of pens.
Now I’m rather picky about the pens I use for writing. I only buy Pilot Precise V5 pens. They’re self-described as “the ultimate writing machine,” which is marketing hyperbole, of course. But still, they’re really nice pens.
However, given that that $9 seems so extra special to me, it didn’t feel right to just buy the same old pens I always buy. So I got these pens instead.
They’re still Pilot Precise V5 pens, but instead of boring old black ink, these pens have an art deco style and come in pretty colors. My muse (also known as my Best Imaginary Friend Forever or B.I.F.F.) seems to approve.
And the first draft of this blog post was written in a very lovely turquoise ink.
So today I just wanted to say thank you to whoever donated this money. I really appreciate this, and you’ve helped make the magic of writing just a bit more magical for me!
And if anyone else would like to “buy me a coffee,” please click here. I don’t actually drink coffee, so the money will be used for writing and art supplies to help keep this blog going, and I promise to keep you all updated on how that coffee money is spent!
