Daily Survival Kit

Le Kit de Survival, for Writers (I tweaked this from Shannon's Weekend Survival Kit).

Obvious items to include in the kit:

Contact info of beta readers, crit partners or best friends and family who love to read your stuff - because at one level or another, we're all craving feedback.

Matches from your local - pub, that is. Because to be inspired to write, you've got to go out every once in a while and not be isolated.

Books - to be inspired by the best, to learn from those who explain the craft, to escape into new worlds, to research... Even if your To Be Read pile grows out of control.

Your favourite pen and notebook - failing that, I've taken note pads, napkins, the verso of papers at work...


Additional items:

A gift card from your favourite coffee place - ah, fuel.

Music (like the Blue Rodeo playlist at the bottom of this page).

A distracting game - Tetris, Bejeweled, Minesweeper...

Don't forget, Kait Nolan's Forsaken by Shadow - Part 8 here!

I need more words and edits in mine and less games :-)

By which I mean, fewer games...
Yup, definitely need more edits!
