We all have methods for our daily tasks and tools to use. Here is a list of my tools for writing in random order. This was so much fun; thank you for having me!

Ten tools I use for writing…

1. My clunky old desk – so old I can’t remember where it came from
2. Extra cushion for my chair to prevent my backside from getting sore
3. My laptop with the faded “L” key
4. Caffeine - Starbucks Carmel Coffee and herbal tea
5. Cookies… or anything chocolate
6. Yoga pants
7. Books on CD – anything from Wayne Dyer to The Hobbit
8. My kids (for inspirational purposes)
9. A tablet for when I’m out and have an idea – If fifteen minutes passes the likelihood of me forgetting the details goes way up.
10. My wandering mind… the best time to jot stuff down is when the mind wanders

Author Elizabeth Parkinson-Bellows

Being the frizzy-haired tomboy with buck teeth gave me a slight case of shyness as a kid. A colorful imagination meant escape and adventure at the drop of a hat.
Over the years I learned that the insecurities I carried around were a waste of time. I still prefer a football game to a manicure any day of the week. That indispensable imagination has found its way into my writing providing a sense of joy and a true purpose.
