A few days ago, I decided to look up gifts for writers, inspired by an author-themed candle a friend posted on my Facebook wall.
What I found? All kinds of books on writing—apparently everyone and their unemployed nephew can tell you methods and strategies for how to be a better writer. Lots of T-shirts with writerly slogans like, “Be careful, or I’ll put you in my novel” or “Keep Calm and Write On.” (Is there any niche group that this British cultural juggernaut cannot fit into its mold? I don’t think so. They’re everywhere.)
And I also found these three gifts. Take a look. Put them on a gift list for a writer in your life. Or, in some cases, maybe not.
As you can see from this picture, I actually own this one. And I’m really, nerdily happy about it.
