When I am writing my bag goes everywhere with me. Even into my studio. Usually I write on the hill, looking out over the sea, but when a story is nagging you never know when you might catch a word or a phrase or an idea.
On my desk, a hare, for Peter’s calendar 2015. It is late. I should be painting not blogging, but I wanted to say thank you to Scaramanga. It takes a long time to find the right bag and I have tried others but always come back to this one. It is like Baby Bear’s porridge. Just right. I bought mine a few years ago now. I think I first found them on facebook, bought this and also the large satchel that I carry books to events in.
Also on my desk, Song of the Golden Hare, a badly stuffed hare, three hour glasses, a Tunnocks teacake egg, a small Wentworth’s jigsaw, a pile of Robin Hobb books with jackets by me, cockle shells., brushes and a cat goddess.
In my bag, a moleskine notebook ( lined), a pen ( Lamy), spare cartridges to avoid that awful moment when the ink runs dry, some postcards so that I can send thank yous for feathers, a spare notebook for other ideas, a small Wentworth’s jigsaw because now I cannot travel anywhere at least without one, a Swiss army knife, a spare pen, some business cards, a mini I am Cat and the bone of a seal.
What do you carry in yours?
