This snarky purple journal is the perfect place for scribblings your thoughts, even if they're not completely formed; after all, as I've written on the cover, "the first draft of anything is shit." Might as well get it down on paper and then worry about editing later! I have hand-lettered this Ernest Hemingway quote in my stylized calligraphy script.

Would make a great gift for your favorite writer or a lovely treat for yourself!

(NOTE: My camera for some reason refuses to capture this purple color accurately. Please see the 5th image for a better idea; this journal is the darker of the two purples).
