I got a Moleskine

Jeepers. One post in and the mini writer’s block seems to have vanished. Awesome! 🙂 Anyways, the topic at hand…

I got a Moleskine. I’ve heard people raving about these for ages and thought I’d do some research and maybe get one. The fact that they look awesome definitely played a role in this as well. When I saw them on display at the shops earlier today, I knew the time was right.

For those who don’t know, a Moleskine is a type of diary/journal/notebook/creative writing or drawing book that is said to allude to the journals written in by such creatives and history shapers as Hemmingway, Picasso and van Gogh. According to the Moleskine website, the journals were produced by a small bookbinder in Paris for over a century and were supplied to stationary shops, frequented by creatively avant-garde individuals of the time (the full history can be found here and is supplied in the back of your moleskine).

The question now is, what to write in it? Time to get creative. 🙂

  1. I own a Moleskine and can say that these things are amazing at getting creative with your writing. They’re also a great way to store thoughts and ideas that can later flourish into full blog posts, or in my case, an entire novel! Glad you like your Moleskine (and good colour choice too!) Enjoy it!
