Note Books Everywhere

Note Books are everywhere in my life. I carry one in my messenger bag, one in my glove compartment, one in the kitchen, living room, bedroom, and bathroom. I am always writing, jotting, doodling, and making notes. Ideas come and go in a writer’s head and I want to make sure I capture them all.

One of the greatest gifts I ever received as a young girl was a writing journal. I began my journey towards writing because of my first journal. Inside of the journal was a note that said,

“You only learn to be a writer by actually writing.”

I write about everything every day of my life. My greatest gift I give to you is to pay this forward. Fill up every notebook, every scrap piece of paper and every napkin.

Everyone has stories to tell, so just write.
