September 11, 2017 | Erica | Leave a comment My writer’s notebooks are all over the place as well as my notes. I have many, many notebooks. Today I wanted to briefly mention the importance of having a writer’s notebook nearby for ideas, inspiration and writing prompts, exercises, and freewriting. They become your Idea Sourcebook – a very valuable item, indeed. Take care of these notebooks, and check through them regularly for nuggets of source material.

Write about what you wish you could change in the world. Prompt 4 – Thursday Imagine the perfect book. What is it about? What is the general story? What does it focus on and why?
