Bag of Tricks (Tools of the Trade)

The Writer’s Best Friend

The world's reached a point where most of us rely on some form of technology. That's reasonable, but there's an "ancient" writing tool that no writer worth their salt should abandon. And if you don't have at least ONE notebook squirreled away, can you actually call yourself a writer?

And you need to make important decisions that advance your work.
