Already filled one notebook this morning and will now start on the second notebook for the day. In the course of several hours of writing, more and more books and papers tend to migrate onto my desk until I’m surrounded by piles of notes, print-outs, research books, dictionaries, and what not. I have to tidy everything up and clear my desk in the evening, or I won’t be able to write the next day.
And, of course, I need tea. Everything is better with a nice cup of tea.
For today’s writing spring I’ve chosen a very special mug: my Pride & Prejudice mug, which is modelled on the design of the old Penguin books (old, that is, in the context of the British market; in Australia, they still have these classic covers on the Popular Penguins series)
