Thanks for stopping by my blog!! In this blog I want to write about my trials & errors and give tips for new writers. Also, since I love to read, I will be giving reviews of books from any genre. Today though, I wanted to talk about one important thing that helps me keep my mind in order through the writing process...Keeping a notebook or journal.
As a new writer starting off, I had to find my routine and my style. Everyone is different and I learned that through joining Facebook writing/author groups...which I recommend joining. It's nice to meet like minded (meaning other people that hear voices and have conversations with made up characters) people. ...off topic
Back on... Always have pens or pencils, whichever you prefer, and always Notebooks. I have a specific notebook at work designated for writing and ideas, notebook in the dining room, something in the living room, and another in the bedroom. I even have a notepad in my purse along with a pen.
It may be like this because I'm getting older and can't remember, but even as I'm writing this post, I'm doing it via my phone on a notepad because my brain wouldn't shut off until this was done. At 12:18AM...this is how a writer's brain works...it never stops.
That's what the notebooks are for. Our characters never really sleep. They are there, waiting to get their story told. They don't care what time it is or where you are, they want it done right then. If you were not to write it down and walk away... you would forget or the never be able to recreate it. That's the worst! Please don't let this happen to you...
If you have a book you would like to be included in my book review articles, Id be happy to work with you! Im also looking for Co-Bloggers if anyone is interested. Happy writing!
