A Writerly Advent Calendar - Window No. 20


I've mentioned already how I suffer from bad circulation in my hands so when I came across these writer's gloves, I did a little happy dance.

Available in Pride and Prejudice (above), The Secret Garden, A Tale of  Two Cities, Jane Eyre, Romans 12, Wuthering Heights and Little Women, each pair features quotes from your chosen novel or piece of writing.

You can buy them from Etsy store, Storiarts.

A Writerly Advent Calendar - Window No. 19


Another writer that I mention quite a lot on this blog is author, Steven Pressfield. His writing advice is helpful and thoughtful, as is his book, Turning Pro. You can discover more about this book and Steven himself on his website.

I reviewed this excellent read a couple of years ago and you can find that post here. Turning Pro would be a wonderful gift for any writer.

A Writerly Advent Calendar - Window No. 18


Writers can become so focused on one thing that we forget about everything else. Give them a helping hand  by buying them a wall calendar. A month to a page calendar provides a writer with the chance to record deadlines and reminders. My calendar hangs close to my desk in a place that I can't miss when entering or leaving the room. I check it at least once a day and as soon as I have a deadline or appointment of any kind, I scribble it down on my calendar.

A Writerly Advent Calendar - Window No. 17


Similar to the writerly jewellery I posted a few days ago, but a lot less subtle, is a writerly t-shirt. I love the one pictured above (find it here on Zazzle) but there's a massive choice available all over the internet.

A Writerly Advent Calendar - Window No. 16

Aqua Notes - www.myaquanotes.com

I don't know about you but the moment I turn on the shower or lie down in the bath, my muse comes knocking, well, splashing or poking, you know what I mean. Of course, I don't have anything to take notes on when I'm in this situation. My children long since outgrew bath letters. I do my best to keep the ideas in my brain but often I forget some details.

Aqua notes must surely be the answer. They're waterproof, to the point that you can use them underwater, and recyclable too.
