Do you usually carry a notebook or Moleskine to capture those writing ideas and Why or Not ?
Yes, I do have a leatherbound journal- in my car actually that helps to keep thoughts in some kind of order..however, still tend to have scraps of paper with thoughts written- all over the place.. I have to write things down- have to, have to, have to... Curious as to why this question was asked?
I like to have a little notebook with me so that I can write ideas down or doodle little things.
But I usually make my own by cutting regular paper by hand or with a cutter and stapling it. I like to make some pretty covers from pretty cookie or candy boxes or cards.
Sometimes I use the cards for actual pages and cut them to the size I need.
I like to make stuff and this is a useful type of craft.
@Elisa.. I am always interested how writers approach the job of writing, on one hand a notebook can become filled with random thought as opposed to sitting down to write a poem or a chapter, a piece of writing clearly defined... with a beginning and an end...
I have mine open on my desk right now. It's in my purse and I also have one next to my bed for those just-falling-asleep ideas. I wrote a hub called "What to put in a writer's notebook." Check it out! It tells more of my notebook ideas.
Damn right. I have always used notebooks of all shapes and sizes...and I have always kept a detailed diary too....and my shelves at home are groaning under the weight of lyric-laden journals. I mostly write songs and musicals...but also the occasional novel....and I have notes and jottings all over the place. If I am writing properly (not just keeping notes and ideas) in a journal...the book has to inspire me. I have abandoned many books after writing just a few mediocre songs. When I wrote a A Tale of Lady Stardust...a tribute to my recently departed wife...I wrote the whole book by typing it into my iphone in the pub....e-mailing it to my mail address...and copying it straight onto hubpages. I like to write like that now....BUT I am still forever carrying notebooks. I hope that has enlightened you....ha ha

When do your best writing ideas inspire you?Sometimes, my inspiration comes at 2 AM and I find myself up 'til 4 getting that story on paper or screen. Other times, by 11 PM, my mind has shut down and I can barely remember why I love to write. Those 2 AM sparks often require drastic...

Is there anything nicer to write on than a Moleskine reporters' notebook, A5 size?I keep this notebook with me for jotting down ideas, and make sure to write on both sides of the paper because they're expensive! This is by far the nicest paper I have enjoyed scribbling on. But there are...

Where do you get your writing ideas?For me it is when I am in the shower. Call me weird but it seems as though ideas come out of thin air while I am showering early in the morning. Ideas also come to me when I am driving. How about you? What activity are you doing when ideas come to you?

Do you carry a notepad with you to write down ideas for new hubs when you're out?What do you do when you think of a great idea for a hub and you're not at your computer to write it down?

Can anyone help me with writing ideas?I have severe writers block. I can't even think of something to write about. I am more into short stories and need something to write. I write mostly suspense and thrillers. obviously fiction.
