You do not need much of anything for my class, but a friend pointed out that you can never go wrong with a supply list. I figured I might as well go a step further, and explain a bit.
Notebook paper or a notebook. While you don't have to write things down by hand, sometimes it helps to get off a computer and do so. Writing things out can give you a feel for the way something is headed, and it's a good way to have a type of hard copy draft. Last year I had a computer crash that wiped out everything that I had not sent to a RP partner. Fortunately, most of my story ideas and notes were in notebooks, so I still had them to build back on.
Writing instruments. A painter is usually very picky about their brushes, I know I am whenever I try to poke a painting. As a writer, you should think of your writing instrument in the same way. During school, you may be required to use a pencil, but on your own, it is your choice. I myself prefer pens, and especially enjoy it when I can get

It's also rather insulting.
Words can hurt just as readily as any stone or stick. They can tear as a knife would, burn like fire, and poison like arsenic. They can be fired as though from a gun, entwined in leather for the whip.
Of course they can sting like bees, honey or hornet, haunting your every step.
Healing comes with this hurt, because words can sooth the soul just as they scar. They can defeat hungry beasts, and even the mighty hound Cerberus was once tamed by words, sang from a broken heart.
Words can be used as balm on a physical wound, just as they can rouse a tired bull into one more struggle.
