Journal your World
I forgot my pen and notebook. Yes, there's an AP for that. But the act of turning on my smart phone, clicking on the AP and facing a screen with lines kills my creativity. My cell is great for making lists and remembering appointments. But writing? I need the the tactile pleasure of holding a pen in my hand and allowing the ideas to flow out.
As families gather for holidays, I jot down sights, scents, tastes and sounds. Keeping a writer's journal is an essential tool for my writing. Also, snippets of my children's conversations through the years along with pictures keep their stories from being lost.
