I don’t write as often as I would like to which is why I guess I started this blog so the number of ideas, thoughts etc don’t clutter up my head. Any writer will tell you that it is always handy to carry a notebook round with you to jot down your ideas, inspiration etc as and when it strikes.
Over the years I have had many notebooks including diaries, ideas books, travel journals, random thoughts and observation books; it does not help that I am a stationery junkie, some are only half filled before I move on to the next one. Usually I like to start the year with a new notebook and diary, some years they get filled to the brim others get abandoned halfway through the year as I get sidetracked on some other project. Nonetheless it always good to read over these notebooks and see how my writing evolves.
I’ll be sharing some of my notes and what I picked up from creative writing classes I attended a few year ago in future posts.
