I always talk about how everything starts from your identity, but the tools also matter in the writing process. The tools matter because they influence your identity. You need to love the way your tools make you feel throughout the writing process—otherwise, you won’t stay motivated and you won’t enjoy the journey. For example, I recently bought a Lamy fountain pen. One of the reasons I wanted one was that I knew a nice pen would help me take journaling seriously and do it more often. It would also force me to treat my handwriting seriously, too.
