Every craftsman needs his tools in order to create his masterpiece.
Writing is a craft and as such, every writer needs his own set of instruments to begin the arduous task of putting to paper what only exists in his mind.
I started out thinking that the only thing I would ever need to begin my career as a novelist is some paper, a few pens and my own creative imagination (and yes, my writing muse).
It wasn’t too long before I realized that being an obsessive-compulsive, way too organized freak was going to get in the way of actually writing. I needed to have the tools of my trade before I could even get my ideas down on paper. More than that, once I actually started writing, I got distracted with other things–like looking for supplies and various objects which would help me write better.
So, in the following pages, I will attempt to list down all the tools/instruments/gadgets which may make my fellow writers’ lives’ more comfortable. Half of the tools listed here are important to a writer. The other half might be completely unnecessary to most writers–but I will list them down anyway because I think they’re cool.
