I'm usually quite reserved when it comes to describing thing as amazing, or fantastic, or awesome, as I feel that if I over use the word, it becomes the norm, and loses it’s impact.
With this in mind, I have to say that there are two writing presents that I received at Christmas, that I feel compelled to describe as AWESOME!
The first is a digital pen from my wife. For those of you who haven't encountered these, they consist of a pen, and a small receiver that you clip to the top of your pad. Then you write! When you are done, you connect the receiver to your pc, and upload the file that it's created, and… taadaaa! Your handwriting or drawing is displayed on the screen, ready for you. Now comes the really cool bit. You can now convert the handwriting into typed text. I know! It blew me away when I first did this. It will make note taking, or scribbling out new bits for my WIP so much easier now that I don't have to type them up later. And, at 3:30 in the morning, any notes of inspiration that I make can be uploaded in the morning!
The second item that I'm well chuffed about is a notebook that my daughter got me from WaldoPancake.com.
It's just a lined notepad, but the cover is just wicked!
Did you guys get anything that you just have to jump up and down and tell people about?
