I wrote my first stories back when I was in the single digits. I had one of those pens that wrote in 10 different colours but, if my old notebooks can be trusted, I strongly preferred the purple one. The durable and faintly fruity scent is still there, palpable on the paper.
I'm so so glad I clicked on your profile today! I love this cover image and you just brought me back to my single digits! You look younger than me, but I wonder if we're close to the same age.
I'm impressed you kept those journals. Purple is a great color! 💜
