Here’s my latest bagesk. A present recently brought back from Mom and Dad when they had a week away; for looking after the house and garden, I had a lovely tapestry style (I love that kind of thing) bag. It’s got all in there that would be on my desk, so that’s why it’s the bagesk.
In it is my larger diary, page a day where I jot ideas and titles etc. Also the books I’m reading, ‘we that are left’ Juliet Greenwood, and A Country Affair, Rebecca Shaw. My folder of short stories fits in there, with the bike and cushions piled up sticker on the front, and in the back of there, I tuck any of those brown envelopes that come back, ready for when I take another look at them and send them elsewhere, or edit.
There’s a red exercise book in there for my o.u. course. That free one, begin writing fiction. It’s good. I’m at the stage where we need to write a short story now.
I posted this after reading on Diane Parkin’s blog, where she’s showing us her writing bag. Previous post from the DD one. Lets have a blog in of bags…. what’s yours like? And what’s in it. By the way, this is a new bagesk, so it’s quite tidy. I have a wardrobe full of others. And, sometimes they throw up an idea for a letter that pays well. This happened recently, so never throw anything away.
