I was gifted some stationery items as a thank you for participationing is this National Stationery Week campaign.
In a world that is becoming more and more technology driven, there is something a little bit special about putting pen to paper. I even keep a paper diary, much to the amusement of most people that know me. No matter how much I try though, I just cannot get on with a digital alternative.
Maybe it’s the childhood writer in me that still gets excited by a new pen. And even though I’m in my 30’s, I still try to keep the first page of a notebook neat and tidy. In fact, I may have been known to rip it out to start again if I make a mistake.
I love lists, pens and pencils, notebooks, post its, quirky paperclips and colourful books. I enjoy ticking things off a handwritten to do list and receiving happy post in the mail that isn’t a bill. That’s why I’m happy to be adding my little bit to National Stationery Week this year and saying that I too think that #WritingMatters.
