Write it Down!

How many of you have heard authors say that you should carry a notebook with you everywhere you go? How many of you do? I can't help but think that this is terribly good advice. Good advice that I, nonetheless, refuse to follow. I constantly have a monologue and/or paragraphs worth of prose going through my mind. And I always feel like I will remember it when I need it. But I don't. Writing things down more often would probably make me a better writer as well as a better blogger.

The funny thing is that I've known this for a while and yet I never do anything about it. So, since I am always complaining about never having time to write and constantly having writers' block (Could this, possibly be my own terrible form of procrastination? Probably.) I've decided to challenge myself and see if it works. For the next week I will be carry around my notebook and writing everything from quotes to epiphanies, story ideas and thoughts for the blog.

I would love it if some of you would do this "challenge" with me. Then at the end we can see how much of our thoughts have been immortalized on paper and if it actually helped in the least with our writing. There is a difference between doodling and truly drawing but even the simplest of scribbles can influence the most beautiful of paintings.
