How I write in the shower

Note pad in shower

Yes, I know, the handwriting in the photo isn’t the best, but that’s because I wrote these notes for my book while standing up in the shower.

Why would I do that?

Well, haven’t you ever had a great thought strike you when you’re all wet?

And then you’ve forgotten that brilliant idea by the time you got out?

Me, too.

In fact, I’ve had too many ideas for my writing go down the drain, so this is the solution I found — waterproof paper.

It absolutely works!

What’s that, you ask?

Nope, the pencil lead does not smear at all.

P.S. My handwriting has gotten better.

Now I can read it.


  1. Lisa

    I need waterproof paper! Great idea!

    • Phil Cobb

      Indeed, Lisa! That’s why I went searching for this solution.

  2. Victoria

    That’s awesome! I need to find something like that.

    • Phil Cobb

      Victoria, the maker sells it on its own website and on Amazon.

  3. Lissa Johnston

    Knowing your penchant for blog humor, I was not expecting this to be so literal. I used to get ideas in the shower. Now, for some unknown reason, they come to me while I’m brushing my teeth.

    • Phil Cobb

      Well, you can stick this to your mirror, Lissa.

  4. Peter Wright

    Waterproof paper is all very well . What watrproof pens do you use?

    • Phil Cobb

      No waterproof pens needed, Peter. It comes with a pencil. Looks like a normal pencil.

  5. Roland Denzel

    I’m going to get this

  6. Damyanti Biswas

    Wow, this is so interesting! I feel like I need one 🙂
