Writers have a deeply personal relationship with their notebooks. To them, notebooks are as valuable as their right arms. When an idea flares, they capture it in their notebooks before it takes flight. Many a great book has sprung from a humble notebook.
Notebooks aren’t just idea stores for writers. They’re things of beauty in themselves. Writers take great care in choosing their notebooks. Surely ideas will flow faster when you’re writing them in a notebook with an elegant cover and highly sniffable paper.Notebooks play many roles in a writer’s life. Let me give you a few examples from my own.
There’s the spiritual notebook, which encourages thoughts to bubble up from your subconscious.
The functional notebook that gives you the space to conceptualise professional projects.
The funky notebook that cheerfully invites you to enter your drafts into it.
And the little notebook for writing on the go.
