Well as promised here’s a picture of my new notebook to be used for my writing journal. It’s nothing special but it has enough sparkle to hopefully entice me to actually use it.
I also,as per recommendation, ordered a Bon Iver CD from the library. (It was available so I shouldn’t have to wait too long before I can listen to it.) Thanks again A Road TO Writing for the tip.
Today was a reading day though, which are also crucial to a writer’s life, so I don’t feel too guilty about it. (Before I read though I did edit my short story, so I did do something productive). Anyway my husband had to mow the lawn and I decided to work on my tan. 5 hours later I finished Me Before You and I got about 70 pages into its sequel, After You. And our lawn looks amazing.
Tomorrow will probably be the first day that I actually write in my new notebook. (Unless I find something inspiring tonight yet, which is possible). I just need to figure out what to start with. Maybe I’ll do a character sketch or I’ll create a world. It depends on my mood and if I find something better to do.
Where do you go for inspiration? Do you people watch or do you look up pictures online? Which do you prefer doing?
