My husband is the best gift giver I know. I showed him the Aqua Notes - Waterproof Notepad I wanted on amazon back in May or June of 2014, maybe even further back. He remembered and gave it to me for Christmas. No, he did not order it way back in May or June. I know because my birthday is in July and also because he had to use my Amazon account to order them two days before Christmas! Just like a man, as Miss Cornelia would say.
First off I just want to say I am not making any money off this blog post. I simply LOVE my notepad. It is not expensive, you can get it for around $8 on Amazon.
It works great in the shower and the bathtub which is where I generally brainstorm or get inspiration for stories. The pages rip off fine. It does feel different to write on at first, because of the waterproofing on the pages; they are smooth compared to regular lined paper. I actually really like how the pages feel to write on, though that is just a personal preference.
The only problem I have had with my pad so far has been getting it to stick to the wall. This is not the pads fault though since our walls are tiled and the tiles are textured. It sticks fine to the bathtub (which is porcelain, I think. It is smooth). So that is where I stick it when I take a bath and want to have something handy for when the muse strikes me like a monsoon. In the shower we also have a window with a very smooth surface on the inside so I stick it there as well. I have not had a problem with either the notepad or the pencil falling from either of these places and am super excited about using it as you can tell.
Have you tried or wanted to try Aqua Notes? Do you have any other solutions for brainstorming in the shower or bath? What other tools do you use for brainstorming? Let me know in the comments.
Keep on Creating,
