A small adhesive piece of paper stuck to something to show that an amount of money has been paid, in particular a postage stamp
I need some stamps to mail in my submission.
"Be like a postage stamp. Stick to one thing until you get there." Josh Billings (American Humorist)
As writers, we need stamps. We need stamps to mail in our submissions. A few days ago I stopped at the post office to buy a book of stamps. I asked if there were any commemorative stamps I could buy. They are usually prettier to the eye than the regular books of stamps.
This is what I came out of our post office with: A book of Harry Potter stamps.
I have a problem. I don't want to use these stamps.
I solved my problem by buying another (regular) book of stamps.
Have you seen these stamps? Would you, as a writer, be tempted not to use them?
PS: I used to collect stamps. They are a weakness of mine.
