Find Another Notebook

When I was younger, I began writing because it was not only something I could do by myself, but it was inexpensive…I didn’t have to ask my parents for money…I just had to ask for a notebook. Since we needed them for school and they were only a small amount of money, I would always justify an extra one…you know notes and such…

When one of my friends would get ready to throw theirs out after the quarter or before summer, I said I would take it…As I got older, I started asking for the 3-subject notebooks…to hold more notes, of course…Now, as an adult, I find myself needing to purchase a 50 cent notebook every once in a while to get the creative juices flowing…computers are great, but they are no notebook…

When you find yourself looking for a topic for your poem, short story, or novel, search the web, but don’t forget to look around you. Return to the simpler times…return to the notebook…Enjoy…
