Share Your Shelf with Kalyn Josephson
- My notebooks - I fill one out for each book. They include everything from world building aspects to character bios to quotes I want to use in the book.
- My bookshelves - I've had these since I was in high school and have slowly been filling them up. They're organized in alphabetical order for the most part, with a couple subgroups like my Novel19s shelf.
- My planner - I have an absolute horrid memory, and without my planner I'd never remember anything. I just got my 2019/2020 planner!
- Slack - This is how I communicate with my writing group, The Guillotine Queens. Without them, this journey would have been twice as hard.
- My whiteboard - I brainstorm a lot of scenes on my whiteboard before writing them. It helps me think them through.
"I drink a loooot of tea, and I collect mugs. These are just a few! I always have a cup when writing or editing." - Kalyn Josephson @KalynJosephson #bookishessentials #tealover #writerslife
- Incense holders - I collect them! And the incense that go with them. I love having them going while I write.
- Mug and tea collection - I drink a loooot of tea, and I collect mugs. These are just a few! I always have a cup when writing or editing.
- Fluffy sweaters - I'm all about the fluffy things. I usually wear gym shorts or pajamas with a fluffy sweater when I write.
- Fuzzy socks - In addition to fuzzy socks, of course! These are just a few of my favorite pairs.
- My cats - mainly my youngest, El, who will camp out in my lap for hours on end while I write. I've gotten a lot of writing and editing done just because I didn't want to get up and disturb her!
