Notebookpocalypse

Up until recently I've only ever used the smaller Paperblanks notebooks, as they are a convenient shape and size for a smaller handbag, plus the designs are just gorgeous. But I just purchased my first ultra and I might be a convert. The ultra is much heavier than the mini, as you would expect, but it's surprisingly comfortable resting on my lap and obviously I can fit a lot more in it. It looks more substantial and feels more substantial, and the pocket at the back can also hold more stuff (faff like business cards, receipts, story ideas hastily scrawled on napkins, etc). Plus they are very pretty indeed.

I sent these photos of my used notebooks to some friends a while ago and thought I'd share. These are all full of stories, snippets and notes. Most of them are minis or around a similar size to the Paperblanks mini:







And here are my new shiny Paperblanks ultra notebooks:

That is so many notebooks! I find it really hard to dedicate myself to a notebook. I have 2 that I carry for different purposes:

1. Panels/Advice: so I only have it if I'm going to a panel or writing workshop and think I'll get some gems from a speaker.
2. Story scribbles: if I need a notebook to jot down story notes or a scene, character tidbits or ideas.

And I've had both notebooks for about 3 years now. I just can't figure out how to get into notebooks! (And I wish I could because I have so many blank notebooks that have been given as gifts.)
