I have too many notebooks on the go;
Looking at the photographs, I realised that the top two notebooks in the first picture don't get used much.. They tend to live at the bottom of the pile. The next one is a notebook swap - a sort of extended letter/musing/thoughts and ideas swap book with a friend that we have just started together, my green paper diary, the moth-patterned postcard embroidery swap book, a plastic covered book for jotting down current notes on a church group that zooms every week, a smaller commonplace book and another writing project.
there are more... these stay upstairs. Most days I write in all the 'upstairs' note books; the green daily sketch journal, the purple morning pages book, and, in the evenings, I write about the events or non-events of the day. ;
But they lie around in untidy heaps making at harder to keep a clear work space on the table;
