Whether you’re a writer or just a creative person, a “writer’s” notebook can be an amazing way to let out some of your creativity and have inspiration to look back on in the future.
Personally, I don’t use just one notebook for all of these things; I tend to spread them out more between several (mostly because I am a notebook hoarder). However you choose to go about it, keeping a notebook is a great way to capture your ideas on a page before they fade away, and to keep your creativity flowing. For those who are stuck for ideas or aren’t sure how to get started, I’ve compiled a small list of some of my personal ideas.
Pick out a pretty notebook that makes you feel inspired, and see how far your creativity will take you!
- Story Ideas
- Random Thoughts
- Ticket Stubs and Other Mementos
- Character Ideas
- Journal Entries, Daily Mood
- Gratitude List
- Magazine Clippings
- Stream of Consciousness
- Book Notes/ Reviews
- Responses to Writing Prompts
- Lists of Dreams/ Goals
- Unsent Letters
- Story Planning
- Notes on Topics that Interest You
- Anything Else that Sparks Your Creativity
Just remember, the possibilities are limitless! Anything that inspries you is worth putting in your notebook, whether your writing it in or pulling out scissors and a glue stick. The most important thing is that you have fun crafting your notebook, and you feel inspired to write when you look back on it. Happy writing!
