This is probably the greatest tip that anyone ever suggested. This came from WordPress itself, but it’s always nice to be able to pass along such a great tid bit. It’s not often that I can say that I’ve been doing something helpful for years.
My first novel was born in a bedside notebook. If I really search I can still find the drawing of the land the story took place in. One time I lost my notebook and I felt so lost. It felt like I had lost my left arm. I could still function, but there was so much that I felt that I was missing out on. These days I have little notebooks all over the house. There’s always one in my pocketbook, night stand, glove box of the car, and several other places. It’s not so little, but I even keep a yellow pad in my briefcase.
You never know when and where inspiration may strike. Even if you’re in the middle of a project it pays to be prepared to jot down your next potential project before going back to what you were doing.
