Even though I took a few days away from my writing recently and I’ll be doing so again soon, my writing always comes with me. My hero and heroines pay no mind when I tell them I’m on vacation… leave me alone. So, I always make sure to tuck a notepad and pen in my purse. Leaving some things to memory is not wise as I have learned through the years. Whether young or old, an idea, a plot, a scene can be pushed aside and not seem as clear or exciting after an endlessly busy day.
It’s one of the reasons I have so many notebooks… journal type, composition, binder, you name it I have it and I’m not afraid to use them! Big, small, narrow, totes to match the sizes, (don’t get me started on totes, another addiction of mine) and pens, pens, and more pens. I’m like a kid in a toy shop when I enter an office supply store or the notebook section of any store that carries them. I always tell myself that I don’t need anymore, but like my hero and heroines I pay myself no mind.
So with notebook in hand I take off for another vacation and who knows what I’ll fill the pages with this time. Or what new notebook I’ll return with.
