A Muse's Guide to the Care and Feeding of an Author Entry 2

Entry 2 (Next Entry:  Oct. 6)

Providing Writing Equipment For Your Author

Your author will need a desk to write on, pen and ink, plenty of paper, oh, wait. No, your author still needs a desk but with a type writer. 

Okay, just kidding. Although there are rare authors who still write on a pad of paper or even type, today's author needs a computer. Life is so much easier for writers today with computers and research searches at their fingertips. You will need to provide internet service for your author.
Think of all the trees authors have saved by not using paper to work on their manuscripts.

Other tools, you may provide are index cards, journals, e-readers, dry erase board, (Eva brainstorms her scenes on dry-erase boards). Some authors love to keep a collection of research books, however this depends on type of genre and the amount of research available on the internet.
