This is a great day because not only does her merch look awesome and hilarious, but also because Jen is one of my dearest writing/blogging/awesome friends and she’s honestly doing a brilliant job getting her name out there, becoming a fantastic entrepreneur, and writing amazing and heartfelt books. I can’t wait till the day I can buy a hard copy of one of her novels and put it on my shelf.
But anyway, Jen’s books are not what we’re here to talk about today. Instead, we’re going to talk about her latest Redbubble merch collection, which is premiering today, 14 October 2020.
And it looks so great!
She’s got a whole range of items for sale, from iPhone and iPad cases, to shirts, hoodies, and coasters, to journals, laptop skins, water bottles and masks. The prices are really good and the collection quotes are 100% accurate.
So how about I stop babbling on about how great it is, and show you some pictures instead? There’s heaps of designs and products, but because we’d be here all day if I talked about all of them, I’m just going to highlight five of my favourites for you.
Somewhere Between Torture and Fun
This is just so true. One famous author (Ernest Hemingway, usually) said, “Writing is easy. All you do is sit at a typewriter and bleed.” And that’s exactly it! Writers probably sound like they hate their jobs, but do they really? Not at all, we’re having the time of our lives.
Don’t Ask Me What My Book is About
“Yes, I’m a Writer. No don’t ask me what my book is about because I may have a panic attack.” Telling non-writerly people about my writing is honestly one of the most nerve-wracking things I ever have to do it. It is the worst. Hopefully, carrying this bag around will ward off the unfortunate questions?
90% Trying to Describe Someone Eating a Donut
This little notebook sums up the majority of my frustrations. Why is this so true? Why is 90% of my time taken up with “How can I write this completely unnecessary and, frankly, boring snippet better?”
Buy this notebook so you know that you’re not alone!
Writers Are Known For…
This one is a wall print, which means that you can hang it over your desk and stare up at it mournfully, both celebrating and bemoaning the accuracy of it. In fact, look at me right now, fangirling over writer merch when I should actually be writing…
I Didn’t See That Coming!
I left this one to last because it is absolutely my favourite. I’m a solid plotter and I love to know where things are going, but inevitably I ditch my outline halfway through when the plot throws a surprise up in my face. And I usually just go with it. I love being surprised by my own writing!
And so that’s that, guys! Please hop on over to Jenna’s Redbubble shop. I only showed you five of her designs here today, but she’s got 10+ in her new collection alone, and there’s plenty of cool things to discover in her other collections. You can also find her on her Website, her Instagram, and her Pinterest! She’s a great author, blogger and general human being and she deserves your support 😀
