Calepino notebook winner

Calepino notebook packaging

Thank you so much to all of you who entered this competition and suggested how I might be able to use this beautiful Calepino notebook. It has genuinely been very difficult to pick a winner. There were so many wonderful suggestions and I certainly have some great ideas to use in the future.

However there can only be one winner and I only want to use this particular notebook for one thing. So…

The winner is Ronin who said

Write ficlets (short short short stories). 100 words each. Your choice if you make it daily or not. Then you sketch the character, whether it’s a stick figure or elaborate. Your choice too.

I’m not sure I’ll be able to do this daily but I’m looking forward to doing something entirely new. Keeping it to 100 words or fewer takes the pressure off in terms of time and will give me something to think about as I drive around Dorset.

Thanks everyone!


  1. Hi! It’s me!

    I wrote you a handwritten note last year but I guess it got lost in the mail. I’m glad to have won the notebook. It’s initially served as my ficlet journal too, but things have been busy. Now I’ll get back into the habit of writing. Cheers!

    1. Hi Ronin!

      Great to hear from you. Yes sadly your note must have got lost but I’m glad you’re enjoying the notebook. Thanks for letting me know!
