    You mean besides a book deal or e-reader? 😛

    In THAT case, I am ALWAYS happy with gift cards to BN. Or a new journal and pretty pens. Or chocolate.

    I am not much help here, methinks. >.>

      Oh of course, book deal should always top the list.

    The Chicago Manual of Style, please.

    Books. Gift cards. Moleskine. It’s a really simple list, but I really want those books so XD
    I guess getting a critique from an editor on your manuscript’s first pages count too. Because those are nice.

    Subscriptions to fashion magazines! I always have trouble with interesting character costuming. Also, maybe Discover mag or Wired for some science and tech inspiration.

    I really want a new, awesome bookshelf!

    I second the bookstore gift cards and Moleskine notebooks, and some good gel pens. And a new iPod Touch. 😉 That last one is frivolous, but there are so many handy apps on there that would keep my laptop page tied to my writing, while I could research on my iPod (and listen to music).

    College tuition is my dream present. Doubt I’ll get it though.

    iTunes gift card, amazon giftcard, and furniture top my list.

    I’d love a taller bookcase, but don’t have the room. I guess asking for a ceiling that isn’t sloped would be a bit much, haha.

    I’m always happy with books, and maybe a good subscription or two. One year, I was given a very nice teapot, so a new mug and a tea sampler would be nice too – especially Mighty Leaf, yum!

    I want to have a room make over. I want it to look cozy and crowded with books. Like a personal library 🙂 With a desk and cool pens and “quills”. (And a random bed just there.)

    I would never say no to a gift card for Barnes and Noble. Either that, or a couple more journals. I’ve gone through about three this year.

    I would LOVE more moleskines. That or just plain candy 😀 OOOOO!! Banned Books bracelets! Maybe you guys should do a livechat just before Christmas. Wrapping up the year and all

    Scrivener for Windows would be awesome.

    Woops thought we were meant to be unrealistic. Definetly a moleskin. And index cards. And loads of refill pads. The ringbinder ones.
    (I can’t write backstory, or worldbuilding on my computer for some strange reason)

    Moleskines. Snazzy spiral-bounds. Money. Books. Books on writing. One of those querying guides with lists of agents/publishers. B&N gift certificates. Starbucks gift certificates. Any kind of gift certificate, because everyone knows we’re poor. Snacks. Coffee mugs. Free time. Sanity…

    A writerly token (pen, moleskine with scribbled notes… etc) from each LTWF author so we can sell them on eBay when you get famous!

    … Or just keep them to feel inspired 😀

    • Kelly November 7, 2010 at 6:52 AM #

      by writerly token I mean something thats already in your possession – even better if you’ve used them before! XD

    • Kat Zhang November 7, 2010 at 3:00 PM #

      LOL, Kelly. We’re flattered 😛

  17. Vanessa November 10, 2010 at 2:45 PM #

    I love how many people want Moleskines! Which reminds me…. we should be having a Moleskine giveaway soon!

    You know what would be so cool? If you guys made a self-published book through blurb or something with all your posts from this blog. I’d buy it 😉
