My Ideas Notebook

I was wondering if anyone uses a notebook to jot down ideas.

How many times have you had a light bulb, not written it down, then later on wished you had? I know I’ve done that!

I carry one around with me so if I get a light bulb, I’ll jot it down.

Light Bulbs can vary from anything between; journal ideas, details, quotes, ideas for scenes, characters, poem themes lines or words etc.

If I’m reading or listening to the radio and I hear something that gives me an idea, I write it down. I won’t use all of them, just some. But they’re worth jotting down.


Does anyone else keep an ideas notebook and have you used any of the ideas in your writing? What kind of things do you like to jot down?
