I’m reading through writers notebooks today, my holdalls of seeds that might grow into something big, or to just be taken as the perfect word choice in exchange for my blah ones. I’m giving you a peek. Because I know you’re curious. . .
I’ve used this line in even my talk. You know this face. What a perfect use of words to describe it.
Time magazine has such amazing writers. I copy down sentences and word phrases that get stuck in my head and practice using them with my own words. And, I’ll bet we all know a “glory hopper” or two. . .
I keep my notebook with me at all times. It’s a reminder that I’m a writer and it helps me to think and see differently when I’m out there in my normal every day world. With a pen in hand, I observe, listen and think with a writer’s eye. . . and get it down.
What gems lie in your notebook? Or is there something you have heard or seen lately that needs to GO into a notebook? I’d love to hear what you consider that “notebook worthy”.
