What is a writer’s notebook?
It is where a writer can keep all of his ideas, prompts, random stories, and other inspirational content. In other words, it’s a place to keep your inspiration (loosely) organized.
WHAT TO INCLUDE IN YOUR WRITER’S NOTEBOOK
There are no formal rules, but you should include things that get your brain moving and makes you think. Like:
- Names I like (for character creation)
- Short stories I create
- Newspaper clippings
BENEFITS OF A PHYSICAL WRITER’S NOTEBOOK
One word: offline.
Getting a physical notebook to jot down your inspiration isn’t for everyone, but being offline is beneficial. It’s away from the distractions of the Internet and a safe place to store your thoughts in the event the Internet is down or your cloud account didn’t back up properly.
